Well, Mrs Otis and I wanted to have a big fish dinner for the people who went with us to Canada. I wanted to smoke them, but I went with her advice and cooked them with some tried & true recipes. Dont want to experiment with a special dinner.
I did mix it up to try some different recipes and get their feedback. I grilled some on the big bahonga gas grill and broiled some in the oven on high heat using a recipe from Larry, the fishing guide. Thought a Q view was in order.
Here's the victims
These went on the gas grill. This was a simple marinade/grilling sauce of butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, minced garlic, lemon juice and black pepper I found on allrecipes.com. I've used a variation of this before to grill fish with great results. This time was no exception.
This was actually a combination of 2 of Larry's recipes. These were coated with panko and crushed cheese its with butter, lemon and garlic. Broiled on high for 5 min/side.
Chow time!! Served up with some of Mrs. Otis' Au Graten potatoes, crab salad, and garlic bread, OOOHHH YEEEAAAH. Both recipes were excellent, with our guests slightly preferring the grilled fillets to the oven broiled filets. The cheese its burnt a little in the oven, so I'll have to remember to crush them finer. But they added a nice flavor and I'll definitely do them again. Needless to say, we were stuffed by the end of the night.
Another broiled recipe he uses is coating with crushed salt & vinegar potato chips, which sounded intriegueing.
Well, thanks for looking. My next smoke will have an experimental Halibut filet on with the chickens planned for this weekend. I'm thinking with a similar sauce to the one I used on the grilled fillets here.
