- fresh cusk (burbot, ling, lawyers, eelpout etc..)
- red wine vinegar
While the cusk is boiling, in a seperate pan melt some butter and garlic.
You'll know the cusk is done when it's tender and looks terrible. But don't be deceived, this is going to be great! Serve hot, and eat it by dipping it in hot melted butter and garlic.
If you've done it right it will taste somewhat like lobster, if you've done it wrong, it will still taste somewhat like lobster. If you can boil water you can't mess this up!
We had to eat our little Perch caught in Effingham NH and came up with this recipe.
|that's one effingsmall perch!|
gut and scale the perch. Heat the oil in a frying pan until it's effinghot. Beat the egg in a bowl then throw the perch into the egg, In another bowl mix corn meal, a small amount of flour and seasonings and mix. Now take the perch out of the egg and roll it around in the cornmeal mix.
Now drop the perch into the effinghot oil. Cook until the fish is golden brown, then remove it from the oil and place it on a paper towel to cool.
|careful that's effinghot|
Once the the perch is no longer too hot to to touch, remove the meat from the bones and discard the carcus. Place the fish meat on the kaiser roll, with ham and barbecue sauce and enjoy your Effingham sandwich.
|that's some effingsandwich!|
|watch out for bones|
We cooked and ate the Fallfish yesterday
We decided to make fish cakes, partly because we were afraid of the taste of this fish and partly because we had the right ingredients.... So here is the recipe you've been waiting for!
- Garlic Powder
- Ritz crackers
- Clean and gut the fish leaving the head and skin on.
Saute onion and celery in hot oil and set it aside
|Pull the fish meat off the bone and separate it from the skin.|
Don't worry about a few bones getting mixed in
|Stick the fish, a few Ritz crackers, a little bit of egg, and the onions and celery in a blender and blend until it's a pile of mush. If you are doing this correctly it should look awful!|
|Heat oil in a pan until it's hot, and ball the mushy fish up and smash it into a couple of patties and drop them into the pan|
|Cook until they are golden brown on both sides|
|Dry them on a paper towel|
|We Have A WINNER!|
To our surprise this was the best tasting fish so far! Thanks Fallfish for being a part of the quest and a part of us!
