Somethings Fishy

We're incredibly lucky in New Zealand when it comes to fish and shellfish. Because everyone is so close to the coast no matter where you are in the country it is very easy to find great seafood, it's just everywhere. We usually bring a few fishy items back from our trips to Coromandel and The Coromandel Smoking Company has some great smoked fish and shellfish. We bought smoked mussels from them. We had also bought some smoked salmon and some scallop paté at the Whitianga Scallop Festival. Tonights dinner is just a tasting platter of all of these really. Julia did some fresh mussels au gratin to go with the platter and we cut up a fresh baguette for the paté. Sour cream and limes make up the rest of the dish.
