Comments: Smoked Eel Salad

Aha! The recipe calls for 2 small gherkins yet there are 4 - 4!! - clearly visible in the picture.

You're not giving us the whole story here, are you? You've left out the secret "double the pickles" step!!

Smoked eel is not something I've cooked with and I commend you for giving it a go. At one time eel was one of the most popular fish in Britain until fashions changed. I'm thinking I've heard of eel pie. That certainly sounds interesting...

Wait, never mind. I see my mistake now. I missed the first reference to "a few" gherkins. You get off lucky this time, but you can bet I'll be counting your pickles in the future.

I'm so glad you are here to keep me up to the mark!

I was in the black market in Naha, Okinawa in 72 and one of the vendor ladies took a live eel, killed and skinned it and then deep fried it with a batter. The aroma was outstanding. I've always regretted not having the time to stay and sample some. Sometimes, the simplest recipe is the best

You don't need a recipe for smoked eel. The best way to eat it is on a nice peace of toast. Place the eel filet on the bread and top it off with scrambled eggs with a little fresh chopped chive.
That's the way it's done in Denmark.
Yummy!
