As a child my father would sometimes bring home a couple of smoked kippers. Each about 14" long, 5" wide and nice and thick. Tail on. Wrapped in newspaper. For lunch mom would steam-saute them. Lots of bread and butter. Stunk the place up but they were delicious!
Recently I thought I'd like to have them again. It took no end of searching for some and when I did get them they were tiny little stinky things kryowrapped. [sp?] EXPENSIVE! and tasteless.
Does anyone know where I can get 'original' kippers?
