    maybe the smoking process does something to the oils in the fish ... dunno really, we are allowed smoked salmon (and I like hot smoked..) though, so that gets me through the smoked fish craving moments ...

    I love it, but when you cook it it does ooze oil. I would imagine they add salt as well.But there is a recipe somewhere to make pate with it (with cottage cheese?) and then it dilutes the syn value.
