One of the reasons we fish is to have a meal. But do you really know how to handle them from the time you catch them till you cook them? This week I talk to Chef Jay Vassil about that, and he gives us a fancy recipe at the end of the show as well.

Deitz - Thanks for the "chef" title, lol. I'll take it but never went to an official school, just 12+ years cooking experience in everything from nice restaurants to bars to deli type places...

Here's a little more info on the Butter Wine Almondene recipe in the Podcast...

Used it alot earlier this year on trout and lately walleyes. A nice mild sauce that lets the fish shine through...

8 or so chopped plain almonds. Without almonds ive used a few slices of onions, have also subbed pecans but almonds are my favorite

1 cup white wine

1/2 to 3/4 stick of butter

1/4-1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning

1/4-1/2 teaspoon cajun seasoning

pinch of salt

in a small dry fry pan on med-high heat lightly roast the almonds. In a minute or so they will start to release some oil and omit a nice odor. Now add the wine and and let come to a good bubble and add everythign else. Cook it for a few minutes and its done.

I usually spray the bottom of a baking dish and place the filets in there and pour the sauce over the fish. In a hot oven 400-425 the fish will take 8 minutes or so? Till it flakes a bit.

I also make this one on the grill or along side a camp fire in tin-foil packets. Make the sauce at home and bring it on camping trips or for shore lunches.

At the restaurant I wont use "lemon pepper" seasoning but instead some fresh ground pepper and juice from half a lemon...

Enjoy!

    • We can only hope to catch a bigger party crappie than him! 
    •   I never followed the Farve story, so don't know the details.  If I had to guess, it would be similar to Rush's.. Rush's story was more interesting to me because he is such a complete hypocrite on the issue.   Arizona hasn't legalized weed, but they are taking on the prescription drug problem, which is the root of the hard drug problem.  (You know, the part you and the feds refuse to acknowledge.)  I suggest you view the "RX to Addiction" video I posted earlier, and the link above to see what steps they are taking.    The feds actually act as an enabler for hard drug addiction.   If you have done your homework at all, you should know this.     Pointing out the double standard for enforcement of drug laws is part of the answer, which again, you refuse to acknowledge.          
    • How come you aren't talking about Bret Farve? Same as Rush, didn't go to jail either.   Are you aware of any cases of people going to jail for this behavior?   They don't seem to make the news.     AZ way behind, several states already have legalized recreational weed.   It is coming nation wide.     For me, the real question is what are sometimes called "hard drugs".   Heroin, Cocaine, Meth being the big three with a whole bunch of others like fetanyl etc.    Making them legal and sold otc like recreational marijuana seems to me like it would be a bad idea, although there are folks that seem to think otherwise.   And they are part of the "war on drugs"     So, I keep asking the folks here who are saying "end the war on drugs" what that means.     So far, not much for concrete answers.   Fingerpointing at affluent pill addicts that get treatment, or those that die, is not an answer.     

    • Of course they are Nick, that is what they do. The sad part is you only think one party is capable of this, your not nearly as dense as JV so you should be picking up on these things by now. Just because one party is less evil in your eyes doesn't mean you shouldn't see through their negative contributions to this country.

    • Hardly, I'm advocating we had the worst two choices in the history of America that I am aware of. Well done two party system, you make yourself less relevant by the day.

    • Ha ya I didn't realize he was that bad. I haven't heard anything relating to protecting players at the trade deadline CM so hopefully that is bunk. I suspect Chuck waits until the prices come down and picks up someone for cheap that will be just a filler, these guys are going for pretty high prices right now.

    • Isn't this up your ally Del? He probably has some success but it would depend on the "patient". Many people have probably healed themselves through the placebo of religious beliefs. If it works it works, who am I to argue if they are getting results but I will admit I doubt anything works across the board for everyone, we already proved that with modern medicine. 
    •       But Trump is going to make America Great Again, so he should be more open with his press briefings, even if it means some of the reporters aren't always friendly.
