Someone has gifted us with some frozen, newly caught smelts. I have had to learn to like fish since we didn't eat fish when I was growing up. I usually choose swordfish or salmon. My husband has eaten various locally caught fish but never smelts. Somebody said I will probably not like them because they are strong tasting. Is frying to best option? I have also been told I might want to cut the heads off and gut them.
Perhaps we should have turned down the gift but it's also a rare opportunity to try something we've never had before. Any recipe suggestions?
