The Engineer and I, along with our hosts K & M, enjoyed a lovely lunch of freshly caught* and smoked siika and sparkling white wine yesterday.
We joined our hosts at their mökki by the beach, and watched M get the smoker going. In the meantime The Engineer took up the axe and chipped a couple of wood chunks to lie under the fish. After a short while the chips were generating a very fragrant smoke. Then the fish went in, the lid was closed and we chatted a bit longer.
Our Mr. 12 and their Mr. 12 were running back and forth dressed in menacing looking outfits and waving their air-soft weapons about. Yes, spring is definitely in the air.
20 minutes or so later the fish was examined and declared ready to eat Sublime, melt in the mouth, delicate smokey flavour that didn’t overwhelm the fish. Yummy!
* M caught these three in his net Sunday morning.
