Submitted by Anthony Robinson: With all of its Norwegian heritage Seattle can be a culinary trip sometimes. A few blocks from our place there's a Norwegian bakery, Norwegian bar, and Norwegian fish monger. The bar has weird liquor called Aquavit that's made from seeds and will destroy you, the bakery has pastries with names I can't pronounce, and the fish shop always has disgusting looking stuff.

Regardless, sometimes you just have to say what the fuck and tear into that putrid fishy nonsense. These were smoked Copper River smelt. I guess you can eat the heads, but the texture didn't do much for me so I just ripped em' off and munched the rest. They look terrible, but are actually really good and freak old ladies out too.
