Smelts

Do you like smelts?  I do. In Belgrade they're gutted and lightly fried.  I even eat the heads....

These were photographed at Seattle's Pike Place Market.

P.S.  Ah, lest I fib to you...I remembered  this post where I didn't eat the heads....

Miam! Excellent.

I do not. But then again, I don't like most fish. That means more fish for you ;^)

No thanks. I don't eat things that are looking at me.

If you gut a smelt is there anything left? They're so small. Guess that's why the heads are left on.

Ha- I remember that dining experience. We laughed so much. Good times

I had some little fish once in London and ate them heads and all—but I was trying to impress a boy. (It worked.)

Eeeuuwww!!! Not my choice of munchies!!! Smelt have been the center of controversy in California...their presence in the Sacramento Delta were causing quite a stir as they got caught in the spillways and dam machinery...causing a reduction in water to the Central Valley...which caused a tremendous problem with irrigation in what was once our most productive agricultural area...
