Twin Harbors Lake Superior Smoked Trout.
I know. This seems pretty gross. But believe me: it tastes way better than it looks.
It? Smoked trout from Lake Superior. We found it last weekend at the Kendall Smokehouse in Two Harbors, MN. The fish is caught locally, smoked locally, and sold in the same store, by the same family, that's been doing it the same way for 40+ years.
The fish is firm, and a little flaky. Not like smoked salmon which can feel slimy to the taste and touch.
The "smoked" of the trout seems local (can that be possible?). Subtle, mild, sublime to eat. You don't want too much at one sitting, so a pound lasts a while.
But then it's gone. And the wrapper looks like this. And if you have nothing better to do with your time you take a picture of the whole deal and write about it on a blog. Hmmmmm.
