Smoked eels?

I had some fond memories eating smoked eels and raw herrings while traveling in Netherlands. Can anyone comment on where to get some of those smoked eels in the metro DC area? I have given up the possibility of raw (non-marinated) herrings but if you are getting it please share how. Thank you.

  1. I would try H-Mart or other Asian markets. I have only seen smoked herring in this area usually at Caribbean markets

      The German Gourmet in Fairfax also has them. Also try the Russian stores--Euro Gourmet in Rockville may carry them.
