Brenna Has Fish Tea

This is what I THOUGHT I might be eating.Yesterday I had a craving for fish and chips. They're SO good here. We were doing our errands downtown, and saw a likely place. It was actually a fish shop, but has seating in the back where they served a few cooked things. Most of the menu was a variation on Fish Tea: Large Fish Tea, Mini Fish Tea, Dressed Fish Tea, etc...

I've been seeing signs for fish tea around, and wondering about it. Is it raw fish, just off the boat, somehow aged and steeped, or mashed and strained? Do you use it as the start of a fish stew? Does each shop have it's own secret recipe, closely guarded within the family and passed down on a deathbed? Is it just a hot broth made of fish heads and bones that is sipped out of a cup? 

This was the perfect place to ask, so I did. In Scotland at least, Fish Tea is actually a traditional lunch: Fried  fish and chips, bread & butter, and a cup of hot tea. Delightful!

It wasn't as mysterious and challenging as I thought it might be, but there's always Jamaica.

Yum! I gained so much weight when I lived in Europe... and I don't regret a single ounce added with every deep fried chip I stuffed in my mouth! (It all falls off again later.) Enjoy~ xx
