Fish

We are grilling tonight - cedar planked salmon. What is your favorite fish ( to eat) and how do you prepare it?

Honestly I really like rainbow trout with a little bit of oil, some spices (lemon pepper, garlic and roasted red pepper) and then slowly grill it over open coals. Walleye is a close second, but I don't have any special way of doing that.

I'm not sure there's anything that comes out of the water that I don't like. I had sushi last night...cajun roll. I like baked sole, fried catfish, cod, etc. I love tuna ceviche. My favorite seafood is dungeness crab and pacific prawns. But I'll take some salmon grilled on a cedar plank in a pinch

The only fish I really eat is fish that fish that I or whoever I'm fishing with, catch. Usually its walleye or perch.

I really like a good salmon. Typically I just pan sear it (like just about everything else I cook).

Also, Alaskan whenever possible.

One good more unique Vietnamese dish, though, is fish cooked in a clay pot. One of the traditional dishes is called "ca kho to". Which is catfish braised in a spicy caramelized sauce.

This recipe is pretty good:
Ca Kho To – Vietnamese Braised Fish in Clay Pot

But I'd adapt it as follows, to make it a little more like my mom's recipe:
1 lb catfish steaks (or other meaty fish steaks)
4 tbs fish sauce
2 tbs minced shallots
2 tbs minced garlic
1 tbs black pepper
3 green onions, sliced 1 inches long
3 tbs caramel sauce (If you can’t find premade caramel sauce, it’s easy to make your own. All you need is sugar and water. Use about 2 tbs of sugar and 1/4 cup water and keep at a rolling simmer, stirring until it reduces and becomes dark brown, about 8min or so. It should be around maple syrup like consistency. If too thick, just add more water.)
1 can of "Co Co Rico" coconut soda (or just coconut juice)
Chili Powder (to taste, 1 or 2 tsps)
cooking oil

directions:
Clean the fish steaks, rinse well and pat dry. Marinade with fish sauce, sugar, pepper, garlic, and shallots for about 1/2-1 hr.
In pot, heat about 1 tbs of cooking oil on medium high and add the marinaded fish. Allow to sear and brown for about 2-3 before searing opposite side for another few minutes. Add the caramel sauce and just enough coconut juice to the level of the fish steaks. Cover and turn to med low heat and allow to simmer for about 25 min (longer if you want it really soft), checking a few times to make sure that it's not reduced too much. Add more coconut juice or caramel sauce if needed. The fish will eventually caramelize and brown, as will the sauce which will be a thick gooey consistency. Taste sauce and make final adjustments with fish sauce or sugar. Turn off heat and add additional fresh cracked pepper, green onions, and optional chili powder.


Serve with rice and veggies!

Same here, I'm blessed enough to live near many bodies of water with varying species

Thank you for reminding me that I have cedar planks stored away in my pantry!

Recently, I've just been making my bourbon salmon. Next time I'm going to try to make miso salmon (a la Cheesecake Factory).
