No Fuss, No Muss: Vancouver Smoked Salmon
Bart: Mom, this is for you. 15 pounds of Vancouver smoked salmon. Here, smell it.

Smoked salmon is pretty tasty. Although regular salmon is also tasty. And, to be more honest, I prefer a nice big steak over any kind of salmon or fish or light bulbs. But what are you going to do? Living in Vancouver, it seemed natural for me to just embrace this particular throwaway joke and just try Vancouver Smoked Salmon, because otherwise what am I even doing here? Certainly not embracing all things Simpsons as would be expected of me.
The smoked salmon was very tasty (but still, not a steak) and sadly it did not come in a giant crate which would have been a nice touch…
Although it would have been a nice gag, I’m pretty sure fish is supposed to be packed in some type of plastic. You know, to keep out all the potential food borne diseases that likely come from food shipped inside boxes filled with packing peanuts. Here’s what my salmon actually looked like:
Ohhh, alder smoked! Please note, I have no idea if that makes this salmon good quality or not. Hey, I’m not going to reach the best tree wood to smoke salmon with. That kind of reach could take up precious minutes. I’ll leave you with the following quote. While not related to Vancouver Smoked Salmon, it IS related to Vancouver. So it kind of counts I think?
Patty: Elvis Stojko is so handsome.
Selma: He can lace up my skates anytime.
Moe: Don’t you hags know that all male figure skaters are twinkly in the lutz.
Stojko: That’s a common misconception. I have a girlfriend in Vancouver.
Moe: Made up girlfriend. Made up city.
