Being on a large rocky island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean does have its perks......a great variety of fabulous seafood!
First , let me introduce you to the tiny, delicious and versatile capelin.
We smoke them and dry them--they are awesome on the BBQ anytime or especially nice during the winter, when we go into the woods on snowmobile, cut down a few dry standing trees and have a outdoor fire. In Newfoundland, that is referred to as a winter "Boil-Up". Here's a picture of a "Boil-Up" that Roger & I had about a month ago on a nice frosty Sunday afternoon. It was about minus 6 degrees Celsius, just right for an open fire and some smoked capelin and a beverage of choice!!
If you like salty or smoky foods, and if you like fish, you would definitely love smoked capelin on an open fire. The capelin alone is a very mild, almost sweet tasting white fish.
Now, for some crab tarts!!
