Steelhead, Smoked

Take one 18 inch steelhead, caught, cleaned, and filleted this morning, and place it into the fridge. 2 hours before dinner, liberally salt the fillets on both sides with kosher salt, and let sit for 30 minutes. Prepare the rest of the menu.

Time to cook. Fire up the Webber with a divided bed of coals. Select alder sticks of just the right size. Get the sides cooking (chicken for DW and friend), and veggies. 20 minutes to go. Rinse off the fillets. Place wood on the fire. Lay on the chicken pieces and let cook for 7 minutes with the grill covered. Turn the chicken and move to the sides, but not directly above the charcoal. Place the fish skin-side down in the middle of the grill, enough for self, and husband of afore mentioned friend. Cover and cook for ten minutes. Take pictures for my new cookbook (still under way).

Remove the fish and chicken to a platter, and organize artistically. Place bright green, steamed veggies around the platter sides. put it on the table. Bless the food and eat.

That's what will be going on at my house tonight.

Seeeeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North

Haha, it's not cooked yet. I'll get pictures when it's cooked and placed on the platter. Right now, I've just finished boiling the bones, and stripping them of meat. I'm boiling up the carrots, potatoes, and onions. When they're tender, into the blender they'll go, with the fish stock, and meat to make a nice steelhead busque that I'll be using for an appetizer.

Oh wow ... nothing like a fresh catch for dinner !

When I lived in Oregon we used to be so spoiled .. fresh steelies, salmon, trout for dinner. You have no idea how spoiled you are until you move away from that stuff.

Definitely need to see the pics !!!

OUTSTANDING! I love smoked fish but I'm the only one in the house that eats fish so I don't get it very often.

Same here. I have decided that I will eat fish more often. I'll just make enough for me, and cook her something else. Then, we'll both be eating good.

One of the things I loved about living in Wash. State was when the salmon were running, little stores used to have a platter of pieces of smoked salmon on the counter. The kids would stop and pick up a piece for their breakfast. Great way to start the day.
