Kippers and Scungilli – Two Delicious Seafood Sensations
While looking for new and delicious seafood snacks to try, you can really let your feet, mind, and eyes wander when you step into our little Old Saybrook, CT seafood market. This is especially true when you browse among our specialty seafood. You may already have a favorite that you're drawn to, or you may be feeling adventurous and feel like diving into uncharted waters for a new snack or meal. If that's the case, we suggest you try out some kippers and our famous scungilli salad.
We'll get the ball rolling by talking a little bit about kippers. A kipper is another term for a herring that has been sliced in half lengthwise (though the halves are not separated) and gutted. They are typically salted for preservation purposes and subsequently smoked to perfection through the use of wood chips. Oak is generally the wood of choice, but other grilling woods such as hickory, cedar, and maple may be used.
