It's Friday again & Mrs Bear leaves me on Fridays to fend for myself.
She doesn't eat fish, so that's when I make things like Shad Roe, Fish, and Seafood.
Many people use Monkfish or Cod for this, but I use about any white fleshed fish (saltwater or freshwater).
I split this batch of fish in half awhile back, so I'm not sure exactly what it said on the package, but I think they called it “Whitefish”.
First I rinsed 2 ½ pounds of Fillets, and cut them all in half to make them easier to handle.
Then I put 6 cups of Water, one cup of Sugar, and two TBS of Non-iodized Salt into a 2-quart pot.
Bring to boil.
Remove from heat & add Fillet pieces. Make sure they are completely covered.
Let sit for 5 minutes.
Remove from water, and drain on paper towels.
Scrape off any skin that comes off easily. (This fish's skin was like oil)
Line pieces up in a foil pan or cookie tray, or similar pan.
Pour a good amount of melted Butter over All pieces.
Sprinkle Paprika over All.
Put in Preheated oven, set on Broil. (I like to use the Toaster Oven).
Broil for 10 minutes for each 1” of thickness, with a minimum of 8 minutes for thinner pieces.
Remove from Broiler, put in bowl or plate, and pour Butter from pan over fish, and serve.
About my Drink:
We had a Cantaloupe that Mrs Bear picked out, that wasn't quite as ripe as we like them.
I put the pieces that were left (about half of a Cantaloupe) into my Omni Blender, then about a cup & a half of Ice. Then I ran the Blender until it was a nice ice cold Cantaloupe Drink. Very Tasty!!
