For those who are not local to Arbroath, an Arbroath smokie is a type of smoked haddock that is a specialty in the city in Angus. The fish is prepared the same way it was in the late 1800s. Generally the fish are salted overnight, and then tied in pairs using hemp twine and left to dry. After they have been left overnight to dry, they are hung over a triangular length of wood to smoke. A stick is fit in between two smokies, and then the sticks are used to hang the dried fish in a special barrel containing a hardwood fire. The fish is cooked with intense heat and thick smoke, which ensures it is cooked and not burned. The smoking process takes less than an hour, and when it is completed the fish is ready to eat. The team at Old Boatyard in Arbroath state that the fish has a unique and savory taste that locals cannot get enough of.
When the owner of Old Boatyard in Arbroath was asked why he invented the popular ice cream, he stated; "People of Arbroath love their smokies. I think it is a taste that defines our city. I wanted to create something unique, that many people would be curious to try. Although it is not for everyone, we constantly have people stopping in the restaurant to see what the buzz is about."
