any new ideas on whitefish?
First off, lake whitefish is probably the most popular food fish from the Great lakes (though I prefer eastern brookeis and rainbow trout myself). They are firm fleshed with a mild flavor. Whitefish can be made into fish cakes, battered, or breaded and fried, baked, broiled, smoked, cooked in foil pouches with veggies, etc. It is great in chowders, and soups as well.
Just for fun, I did a quick google search to see if there was a way I haven't had whitefish and found this: Great Lakes Whitefish - Fried Whitefish Tacos
Also, this looks interesting: Great Lakes Whitefish - Blackened Great Lakes Whitefish With Asparagus
This: Great Lakes Whitefish - Great Lakes Muffuletta
This:Great Lakes Whitefish - Mackinac Whitefish Bisque
This site has a host of whitefish recipes, from which the above were taken.:Great Lakes Whitefish - Recipe List
How do I like my whitefish? I like to take a boneless fillet, pat it dry with paper towels, place on a oiled broiling pan, flesh side up, drizzle with a bit of melted butter, a squeeze of lemon juice, a dash of tarragon, and a bit of salt and pepper. Broil until the top of the flesh just starts to take on a bit of color, flip, and broil for two more minutes, then serve with asparagus, or some other fine, green veggie.
