What a lot of Fiiissh!

On the way back from my seamstress yesterday I noticed that the fish sellers had managed to string drying Snoek along the full length of this school fence (200m long and I counted nearly 1500 fish). Salted and dried Snoek is a delicacy that is used to make the traditional stew called Smoorsnoek.  Honestly, I have never tried salted and dried Snoek or Smoorsnoek. After seeing sights like this where the fish is dried opening on rusted fences, I do not think I want to.

P.S. I couldnt fit the whole image in without making it tiny. To see up-close, click on the image and a larger version will load and you can zoom in.

    Oh no, you missing out on the Cape Tradition. One can get some nice dried and smoked snoek at the Kalk Bay Harbour and make Smoorsnoek but a real Capetonian needs prepare this meal…
