Today is the first day of Spring, and it’s been snowing like crazy all day, so I gotta make something inside.
Imitation Lobster got the nod, so I pulled 7 Whiting fillets out of freezer to thaw.
After thawing, I cut the fillets in half.
Then I put 6 cups of water in a pot, along with one cup of Sugar, and 2 TBS of Non-Iodized Salt, and brought it to boil.
Once the water was boiling, I removed from heat, add fillets, and keep them in the water 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.
Pretty good tasting stuff!!!
Mrs Bear doesn’t eat fish, so this was all for me, along with a couple slices of buttered toast.
