It’s good to have ‘sources’. Today, a whole 8 lb Northern Pike found its way into my kitchen. After much gutting, skinning, and deboning [boning being the correct term, but deboning sounds less vulgar, no?], I had a good platter full of fresh fish to play with. And a copious collection of veg oil that I didn’t want to bring with me on our impending move. So:deep fried northern pike with yukon gold fries.
Not that there was much debate. As soon as I heard a fish was coming the decision was made to deep fry some of it. Ever since this post, I’ve wanted to do some more local lake fish. Execution could have been better, but it was a treat nonetheless.
