Does anyone know where to buy freshwater smoked eel? My husband remembers it fondly from his native Poland. Spread on good crusty bread for breakfast after a night of vodka, mmmmm. Anyway would love to find a place on the eastside but I am wiling to drive. Cheers!
the fish shops in A'dam have it - so unbelievably good. There is nothing I have ever seen anywhere in LA though Jon's markets often has smoked fish of various and changing ilk.
Also the Russian delis in Weho, I would give Tatiana's a try (Hayvenhurt/SM blvd, also best price on queso manchego in LA, who would dhave thought?) There are lots of smoked fishes there.
The fancier fish shops in Holland had stuff of a quality I would never expect to find in the US, though. In fact, if you seem my little pic (avatar) attached to the profile - it is me eating a whole herring at a fish shop near Groningen!
