selected recipes that may or may not be fish
may seem hard to believe, this is such a complete web site...
we have also included some of our most well liked and much complemented
recipes for fish and other specialties. Let us know what you
think about this part of the site.
Beer Bits - A local favorite and quite simple.
to 2 pounds of halibut cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
cup of pancake flour (Krusteze is the best)
can of beer
tsp lemon pepper
tsp garlic powder
flour, beer, baking powder, garlic powder and mix well.
Add the fish and let stand for at least one hour.Deep fry in either
peanut oil or canola oil until golden brown. Place on a tray
which has been lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil
and keep warm in a preheated 300 degree oven. (hint don't
leave in the oven more than 15 minutes or the fish will dry out.)
Serve with this special sauce.
White Wine - Rhine is good
cup of either low cal mayo, or Miracle Whip for low cal try yogert
tbs. lemon juice
tsp. chives (fresh is best) Can also use a tablespoon
of capers! In addition to the chives throw in some dill weed! Any
or all work to enhance the flavor of the sauce.
tsp. of garlic powder, or onion powder or both.
and let stand at least 1 hour before serving. I prefer overnight.
½ cup mayonnaise
tablespoon dill pickle juice
tablespoon lemon juice
teaspoon chopped fresh chives
teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
cup chopped dill pickles
the mayonnaise, pickle juice, lemon juice, chives, parsley, and
pickles in a small bowl. Stir to blend all the ingredients and then
cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
sauces are good for any of the fish you will see on this site.
It may make you famous if you are not careful.
are a couple of ideas to cut the calories and add extra zest to
the White Sauces:
adding a tablespoon of capers
using plain yogart instead of mayo or Miracle whip
also add preserved lemons instead of lemon juice (see the recipe
for creating these next)
six lemons into wedges
each into a pint wide mouth jar straining out seeds as you go. As
you add each
add 1/2 tsp of kosher salt for each slice.When the jar is full be
sure to have enough juice
cover all the lemon wedges. Do not add reconstituted or bottled
lemon juice! Use only fresh squeezed. Close the jar and shake with
vigor untill all salt is disolved. Let stand out of the frige for
3 days. Then, move to the refrigerator for 4 weeks. After the four
weeks the lemons will be ready. I use only one for this recipe as
they are intensly flavorful. When you remove from jar, rinse thoroughly
to remove salt. I then chop the whole lemon slice (peel and all)
and add to salzas, fish sauce and at times to my salad dressings.
There are hundreds of uses just look up preserved lemons on the
internet for more ideas. These are awesome!!!!!! (keep
Supreme (new improved recipe)
pounds of halibut cut into 1 1/2 inch squares
tablespoon fresh chives
package of Italian croutons to crush for bread crumbs
1/2 cups of sour cream
1/2 cups of Mayo or Miracle Whip
cup white wine
the halibut into 2" chunks and cover with milk for 1 to 2 hours.
Drain the halibut but do not rinse.
the chunks in the breadcrumbs and place in a flat ovenproof baking
pan. Try not to crowd the pieces if possible. Cut the onions into
large flakes and mix into the combined sour cream and mayonnaise.
Thin this mixture some with the white wine and pour over the halibut,
spreading it out evenly. Top with a sprinkle of paprika and bake
at 500 degrees. Yup, that right ...500 degrees. Bake for 15 to 20
minures until the top is browned. Remove from the oven and let it
rest for about 5-10 minutes before serving. This goes very well
with baked potatoes. This can be prepared the night before and refrigerated
until it's time for the baking.
Salmon - Wrangell Style
Steaks cut 3/4 to 1" thick as many as you need
(the cheap yellow stuff) 1 tablespoon for each steak
1/2 tsp for each steak (fresh chives of course)
is too easy... Mix the mustard and chives and spread over both sides
of the salmon steak. Don't worry, this sounds worse than it
really is. After completely covering the steaks, let them
stand for at least 4 hours in the fridge. Then when ready to begin
cooking, place them in a cooking rack (the kind you use for fish)
or carefully place them on a preheated gas grill. Set at med-high
temp. When nice and brown on one side, turn and
brown the other. Make sure the fish is flaky before serving.
Only turn the fish once! Serve with our famous sauce found earlier
on this page. Even if you don't like mustard this
will be a good recipe. It has a tendency to turn a golden brown
and is not a problem. Trust Me!
