These made a swift transition from the cool waters of the Atlantic (14 degrees, I checked later with my all-over-body sensor) to our plates in less than 4 hours.

They were swiftly gutted, beheaded and betailed upon landing, for the greatest joy of the local gulls (I remembered not to throw jewelry at them along with the mackerel entrails this time – I still miss that little gold ring), and then went into a quick dip in the lager and flour batter before a shallow fry.

Just simply delicious.

I didn’t bother looking up the calories intake.
