I keep reading about sand dabs and still have no idea what they are.
Is it a fish?
Are they small like sardines or large like trout?
Where does the "sand" part of their moniker come into play? Do they burrow into the sand and become extra delicious there?
Are they always served the same way (i.e. fried) or are they prepared in different ways?
Lastly, where are the most delicious sand dabs to be found?
Please help unlock the mystery of sand dabs for me!
