Haven't gotten around to that gumbo yet... but we made smoked salmon last night at my mom's.  And a full Japanese feast - kinpira, wakame soup, wakame salad, simmered daikon - it was awesome!

All I took picures of was the salmon... here are the salmon heads that were given to me by one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Fort Worth:



And after smoking....


Amazingly good. I had leftover in a bento box for lunch today.  I think I need to pick up some cream cheese.... salmon rolls with smoked salmon and cream cheese sounds awesome!

Wow! I wish I could smoke my own fish... I would start with eel (have you ever had smoked eel? it's a pure delight..). The salmon looks excellent too! Not like the industrially bred, over-fat rubbish we often have here...

Thank you! It was excellent salmon. I've had canned, smoked eel, and it was delicious! No one here seems to appreciate how good eel is. It's not a fish that you find in Texas, where I live, unfortunately!

It was most very yummy indeed! Who knew that salmon heads had so much meat on them and was the best part?
