Greek fish market
This fish vendor was lovely, although we communicated with very few words in the same language. The little fish in the wooden crate were served to us in the restaurant facing this fish market (our young waiter looked like David Beckham!) they were just fried in a simple flour batter and they were delicious with a simple squirt of lemon. I call these fish smelt and so did the menu, but this man was calling them something different, most likely their Greek name.

My Dad used to catch these when he went fishing, I think that is all he ever caught with the net, as when he used his fishing rod he only seemed to catch sea weed!
