Tom showed us how to tell the freshness, how to scale, gut and fillet fish. I thought I was going to be a little squeamish but surprised myself and felt comfortable with it.

While our fishes were cooking, Tom served smoked salmon cured with salt and sugar which we enjoyed with fresh bread and wine.

The entire meal was delish, we even made our own sides but my favorite was the smoked ice cream served with peaches. I might have helped myself to more than two servings, opps! :-)
