Halibut Fingers

The process:

Get started by thoroughly washing your Halibut fillets in cold water.

Cut the fillets into “fingers”, – 4 inches in length, 1 inch in width, 3/4 inch thickness.

Pour vegetable oil in a plastic bag and add the crushed clove of garlic. (Let stand for 3 minutes)

Add the Halibut fingers to the bag containing the vegetable oil / crushed garlic.

Shake well and Let stand for 3 minutes.

Mix the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese together in a container large enough to roll the fish into.

Roll the fish fingers into the bread crumb / parmesan cheese mixture and place on a cookie sheet / tray that has been sprayed with pam or similar product.

Preheat the oven to 400* Fahrenheit.

Place the tray in the oven and cook for 10 to 14 minutes. (Do NOT overcook)

Stephen’s Teriyaki Salmon

Teriyaki Salmon
6 to 8 lb salmon
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp oil
¼ tsp pepper
2 cloves garlic

The process:

Combine all ingredients except fish an set aside. Remove all bones from the Salmon leaving the skin in place. Marinate fish in mixture for at least 1 hour. Preheat barbecue to medium heat (340 deg). Lay the Salmon skin side down on tin foil (or on a cedar plank that has been thoroughly soaked in water) and place on  barbecue grill. Cook approximately 20 minutes or until fish flakes, basting at intervals with extra sauce. Serves 8-10 people.

Candied Salmon

Indian Candy

18 lbs of Salmon (approx)
4 cups  Demarara Sugar (Brown)
½ cup rock salt

The process:

Remove the skin and all bones from the salmon . Cut the Salmon into strips (3/4 inch wide by 4 inches in length.

Mix the salt / sugar and place a layer of the mixture on the bottom of a large pot, then add a layer of Salmon. Add another layer of the salt / sugar mix and continue this layering until done.  Let stand in a cold room or refrigerator for 24 hours and then move the fish around (with hand) in the pot to insure the brine which has now formed, has accessed all parts of the fish. Let stand for three more days. Place the fish on the smoker racks the evening before smoking, to glaze over night. In the morning preheat the smoker for 20 minutes before adding the racks with Salmon. Monitor the smoking, move racks around in the smoker to insure consistency and add chips as required. Remove and let cool when the desired texture is achieved (don’t over cook as the fish will continue to cook / dry until cool).  Vacuum seal in small packs when cool.

Pan Fried Halibut with Potato chip coating

(1) lb of Halibut, washed, patted dry and cut into one inch strips

(1) large bag of Miss Vickie’s Sweet Chili and Sour Cream (our favorite) or Lay’s Dill Pickle Potato Chips

Egg wash – (egg white from one egg with a tea spoon of water)

Three quarter cup of white flour

One half cup of Canola oil

(1) tea spoon of butter

The Process:

Crush the potato chips into coarse crumbs. Place the Canola Oil / butter into a frying pan  and heat to one step above medium. Roll each piece of fish in flour, then roll in egg wash and then roll into (crushed) potato chips.

Place the fish in the heated frying pan and cook until one side is one third cooked, flip and cook the same on the other side. The middle of the meat should still appear raw. Remove the fish and place on a plate for (2) minutes (trust me – it will continue to cook and will be perfect at the two minute mark……if not to your liking, zap in the micro-wave oven for 10 seconds.)

Serve with white rice and coleslaw.
