    Smoked Salmon Vodka
    In this photo taken Friday June 18, 2010, The Alaska Smoked Salmon Flavored Vodka is seen in Anchorage Alaska. The release comes about a year after the Seattle based Black Rock Spirits introduced a bacon-flavored vodka. Both savory spirits were intended to complement Bloody Marys, but are finding wider uses among mixologists. (AP Photo/Mark Thiessen)

        I rarely drink any hard liquor any more, but that actually doesn't sound half bad. For a Bloody Mary, use that and add other vegetables, keeping on the non-sweet side.

        Disclosure: I grew up in salmon country, and grew up eating salmon, steelhead, and rainbow trout (a lot!) because my grandfather was a fly fisherman and basically lived to fish, and we were Catholic, so Friday's were fish days.

        Now, lutefisk, that's a real poison there. Nobody will try to make that into a flavored anything...

          ... especially smoked salmon like I could get when I lived out west.  I like fried fresh trout.  Fried fresh walleyed pike like my mother made.

          The idea of flavoring a vodka with salmon....

          < ~ shiver ~ > That hits my gag reflex.

          Lutefisk is something my mother made every Xmas eve for her and Dad.  Neither my brother nor I would eat it because of the smell, so she made her famous fried chicken for us kids.

          When I was 41, I was at Mom's for Xmas eve and she was soaking lutefisk and putting it in fresh water every hour or two for a couple of days before then until she was satisfied all the lye was out.  She said the secret to good lutefisk was baking it.  I tried it..., and was totally astonished that when it's baked like Mom made it, there's negligible flavor - it's cod; little or no flavor; the only real flavor is the melted butter one dips flakes of fish into.  Mom said she couldn't stand the gelatinous mess of boiled lutefisk.  She died a few years later but that's the only time I ever had lutefisk - and totally surprised myself by liking it!
