Default Great steelhead dinner--

Right here, from Wildwood

Have you ever heard of this rock salt method? Weird.

I tried it tonight. Frankly, couldn't tell much of a difference.
I had fun with my garden. Rubbed Mr. Steelie Salgato with fresh basil, thyme and parsley and chives...

then, made a spinach, walnut, and raspberry salad.

Then, took a round of focaccia and brushed it with olive oil and covered it with tomatoes and mozzarella and garlic. (YUM!)

That, and some white/wild rice, and what a dinner!

Jen

Wildwood is my son Andrew's favorite place to eat. (No wonder, huh? Gee!)

Anyhow, he's been begging me to cook it like they do.

I tried! It WAS good, though!

Andrew has expensive taste. I have seen salt uncrusted fish and beef. It makes a crust around the meat and I guess it steams and bakes it at the same time. You break the crust off and presto...........yummies.

Andrew and David were raised by a chef, their Daddy.

Andrew always has had expensive taste. He was the only kid I knew that at four years of age, knew the names and the tastes of 10 different sauces.

"Mommaaaaaa... Bearnaise, please..."

David was always simple. His nickname is "deedeecakes" because all he ever wanted was pancakes.

When my children discovered the joy of good Lox I knew I was in trouble. Now I make my own when I can catch a fish. I wonder which is cheaper?

Lox @ 14.99 a half lb
Salmon @ $20,000 Boat+ $20,000 truck+fising Rod+ reels+ Gas+ Tackle+License+ launch fee+maintenance+filet knifes+ cold smoker+rent for the house...................man never mind it looks like buying Lox was a pretty good deal. (LOL)

The rock salt method is simple and yet the food turns out very tasty! Instead of the oven, my wifes just cooks over the stovetop. She recently cooked jumbo shrimp on it and it was delicious

Did you have any wine with your meal??? Semmilon, Sauvignon Blanc, Dry Riesling, Pinot Gris or Pinot Noir are all great choices.

"Note to self, Thaw a steelhead filet and open a bottle of wine.

Had a Hazelnut encrusted Steelhead at a local place on Grand Ave a few years back...it was yummy. Had it with a mixed green salad and an Ice cold Beer......even better.

Even though I am an avid, addicted fishermen I really can't eat the stuff. I know this sounds strange and it does to everyone I know but I find joy in the experience of catching and preparing for others to enjoy so the cycle is complete!

I get tons of kudos on my blackened steelhead, ever try it? It is so easy and will bring tons of raves from everyone you are treating and they will ask for it over and over, believe me I have heard it. Here is how I make it.

Take a fresh steelhead and steak it

Go to the grocery store and in the meat department you will find cajun spices in a shaker container, don't have a preference.

Need a cast iron pan, if available but a heavy pan will work

Take the pieces of steaked steelhead and coat each side with the spices

Heat your pan with either olive oil or preferably peanut oil as hot as you can get it (only need enough to cover the bottom of the pan about an 1/8 of an inch). If you are doing this on the inside stove be sure to turn on the exhaust fan, it is really important.

Carefully place the steaks into the super heated pan, you will get smoke from this so that is why the exhaust fan is needed. Cook for maybe 1 - 2 minutes per side and remove from the pan.

Allow the pieces to set up for a minute before serving and you will get an incredible dish of blackened steelhead! The fish will have a black, spicy crust on the outside and be nice and tender on the inside as the searing locks in the juices and flavor. Serve with your choice of sides.

Whenever I make this and people are over that know it, I have to beat them off the fish when it comes out of the pan, it is that good!

Bon Appetite!
