Food Thread: CBD-MIA Edition

[The Northern pike (Esox lucius)]

***

Good afternoon and welcome to the Food Thread. My friend and fellow Cob, CBD, is currently a roving individual. Happily Mrs. CBD is by his side and keeping him out of trouble.

During his travels he asked me to step in for him. Because I certainly cannot fill his shoes.


So now that we have the introductory information out of the way, you're probably asking yourself why is the Northern Pike featured above the fold. Good question.

The Northern Pike can be found in numerous states and Canada. It is an aggressive fish and is easily caught. They are delicious to eat as well. However, there is a draw back. They are an incredibly bony fish. And just your normal filleting routine will not remove the pain in the ass "Y" bones.

The "Y" bones can be removed and are easier to remove in larger fish. But what is one to do with the smaller fish commonly referred to as "Hammer handles" or "snakes"?

You can and should pickle them. The nice thing about pickling Northern Pike is you don't need to remove those pesky "Y" bones. Those darn "Y" bones just dissolve. Just fillet the fish if you were filleting any other fish.


Here is an incredibly easy recipe to pickle Northern Pike or any other fish you would like to use:

IMG_3376(1).jpg

Pickled Fish

Soaking brine: 1 cup canning salt. Mix with 4 cups of water. Cover fish with brine. Refrigerate 48 hours. Rinse with cold water.

After rinsing the fish, cover the fish with white vinegar and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove the fish from the vinegar and place fish in layers with alternating red or yellow onion in jar.

Pickling brine: 2 cups white vinegar
1 tsp. whole cloves
1 3/4 white sugar
2 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp whole allspice
4 bay leaves
1 tsp peppercorns

Bring to a boil, simmer 15 minutes. After simmering cool brine in refrigerator. Pour over the fish. Refrigerate for 2 weeks.

Then enjoy!!!!

It is not recommended you use fresh caught fish for this. Freeze the fish for at least a week to 10 days to kill any parasites that may be present before pickling.

You may say, "Hey, Mis. Hum. Northern Pike is not available to me. What can I use?" The wonderful thing about this recipe is that you can use just about any type of fish. I have pickled Largemouth Bass. They turned out fine. A friend of mine has also pickled Black Crappie. He said they were delicious and I'll take his word about food.

Another fish that will work is Pollock. I really don't care for Pollock fried, baked or broiled. However, this plentiful and inexpensive fish does pickle quite well.

Crackers with cheese spread, pickled pike and onion. A pretty damn tasty treat that is easy to make.

Perhaps you would rather grill. Cooking With Fire

It's time to kick off outdoor cooking season! We’ll be updating this hub for all things grilling with new fire-kissed recipes, grilling tips and tricks, and gear reviews all summer long.


Well we had burgers cooked inside last night. The damn mosquitoes were horrendous.
I've had gas grills and charcoal grills. I prefer charcoal. Although I've never been known to turn down an entree cooked on a gas grill.

Once in Canada a boatmate was reeling in a small pike of about 12" when a large one 30"ish grabbed it at the boat.

57 So Friday I made a spiced ground pork stuffing for burritos. Well, with burritos you need refried beans as glue. I've bought cans of refried beans in the past but it looks like, well, you know, dog food. So I opted to make my own.

Used two cans of Goya pink beans, 1 medium onion finely minced, 6-7 cloves of crushed garlic, half a teaspoon of Better Than Bouillon Chicken, cracked black pepper and around a half a cup or so of loosely packed chopped cilantro.

In a straight-sided non-stick pan, I sauteed the onions 'til soft, added the garlic until it perfumed. Added the beans and liquid, rinsing the cans out for a little more liquid. Added the bouillon, pepper and cilantro. Proceeded to mash (plastic masher) until I got the right consistency, then stirred on heat to get it to the right thickness.

Great batch of refried beans. Tasty burritos: With seasoned ground pork, refried beans, sliced black olives, grated sharp cheddar/jack mix and sour cream. Used Mission brand large tortillas, 8 in a pack.

Leftover meat will become soft corn tortilla/taco filling with lettuce, sour cream, etc.

5.5 hours at 210 degrees, with a 30 minute blast at 325 to crisp the skin and take the internal to 175 degrees.

Super juicy.

When it comes to turkey, I'm pretty basic. I just like roasted turkey breast, that's about it. Every other turkey product has a weird aftertaste to me.

And the ground turkey's color and consistency was just so icky! It's all pink, reminded me of human flesh. Then it stuck together like play-doh. And that weird aftertaste just couldn't be disguised. Not even chili seasoning got rid of it.

Oh well, I tried.

Another is green chili chicken enchiladas. It was mid winter and didn't have a lot of money. Had some cans of Stokes green chili and poached a few chicken breasts in broth, cumin, garlic, s and p. Doctored up the canned green chili, cut up chicken, shredded cheese, roll in flour tortillas and smother with green chili. Freezer clean out days are fun.

157 MisHum,
Thanks so much for the pickled pike process. I first had it at a restaurant in Wisconsin over 20 years ago. Don't know why I ordered it as an appetizer because I had always heard it was all bones. Turns out it was tender and delicious. It was the first freshwater fish I ever ate. (The first decades of my life all seafood had come from the ocean.) BTW, I have since learned of the wonders of other freshwater fish. Fresh caught perch and trout are at the top of the list.

I've since become a big fan of pickled fish but never made my own. That is going to change.

I do a fusilli one with tri-colored pasta, crumbled Italian sausage, slightly cooked sliced fennel/sweet red pepper, balsamic, olive oil and lemon juice/zest. Cheese of your choice, grated, small cubed mozzarella, or even smallish chunks of imported provolone. I always like sliced Kalamatas, too; I can never get enough Kalamatas.

It was brought up here, in reference to the "world's largest freshwater fish" news of a stingray caught in the Mekong.

Sturgeon were bigger, the record one by a factor of two or so, but I guess it was weasel-worded that sturgeon are like salmon and can live in both fresh and salt water, so they're not exclusively a "freshwater fish."

Biggest one I ever saw was at the mouth of the Columbia River. I estimated it to be about 12-13 feet. They are also remarkably long lived. This one was probably well over 100 years old.

215 The pickled fish that I've had have been pretty gross.

However, that pickling brine contains some very strong and aromatic spices that probably overwhelm any of the fishy taste.

I'm guessing you'd hardly know whether you're eating pickled fish or pickled peaches except for the texture.

This seems like a cheat.

217 My family had a fish cake recipe to get rid of all those northern filets. We fileted them with the Y bone in. Froze them solid, partly thawed them and ground them in a meat grinder (one of those old school hand cranked cast metal ones). Added eggs, garlic, onion, salt, pepper and ground-up saltines. We'd freeze them in portions and deep fry them up for parties with homemade cocktail sauce. We never wasted those snakey filets. Trick to the recipe is getting the correct amount of crackers to not make it too dry.

Anywho, kippers and scrambled eggs makes a great weekend breakfast. Esp. if you throw some English muffins with orange marmalade into the mix with a nice hot pot of tea.

Posted by: N.L. Urker

It was brought up here, in reference to the "world's largest freshwater fish" news of a stingray caught in the Mekong.

Sturgeon were bigger, the record one by a factor of two or so, but I guess it was weasel-worded that sturgeon are like salmon and can live in both fresh and salt water, so they're not exclusively a "freshwater fish."

They'll eat anything that moves, including other Northern Pike, so treating them as an invasive species isn't wrong.

Then its head came out of the water and with a big splash the fight was on. Managed to eventually bring it back up and get it into the boat. My Mom was excited. She stuffed it and cooked it that night. It was excellent. I'm sure there were bones but being the last of six children and feeding your entire family made it that more special.

300 Here is a weird sounding but super delicious, super easy hors d'oeuvre for your summertime cocktails.

Take a nice ripe mango and peel and slice it about .25-.33 inches thick and roughly the size of the hole when you put your thumb and middle finger tip to tip.

Top with a small spoonful of sushi grade salmon eggs.

Eat in one bite.

That's it. Your guests will think that you're a culinary genius cuz it's such an unlikely combination but matches perfectly together - the mango's sweetness, flavor and acidity combine with the eggs salty creaminess for a delightful flavor.
BONUS! The colors look pretty and appetizing together.

I don't remember where I picked up this recipe years ago but it's always a hit when we serve it to guests, and, of course, when we eat it at home.

378 Polenta the Roman way:
Cook the salted polenta in a pot until it's a thick paste, then pour onto a large pasta-making board and square it up (rectangle it up?). It will set. It should be an inch or two thick.
Ladle bolognese sauce all over it. Sprinkle parmesan (and pecorino) over it.
Using a piece of clean string, one end in each hand, cut grids into the rectangular polenta, such that each person partaking gets a slab. Everyone sits down around the table and digs in to their own slab with a fork.
This is a family fare. If people are squeamish then serve the slabs on plates.

There is a totally different recipe for polenta Torinese. It involves milk, butter and parmesan. Not suitable for those allergic to dairy. Delicious.

Kippered is salted and smoked. Pickled, when talking herring, I consider it to be more of the type with a wine or vinegar solution, without smoke. Usually like the recipe in the OP.

436 Pete Bog, my Nina would beat you with her wooden spoon for even mentioning that.

437 All I've got to add to the food thread is that I cooked four pounds of pinto beans yesterday, using lots of black pepper, salt pork, and minced garlic. Soaking and rinsing are very important. The beans turned out to be pretty good, even though I had to leave them be for a few hours to look for a lost dog (further to a comment from yesterday's ONT). There were enough beans to put away in food containers and freeze for another day. No Blazing Saddles consequences so far.

438 388 Polenta, properly prepared, is a lot of work.
It requires constant stirring.

439 I am one of those who loves cilantro, especially on a bahn mi sandwich. I think it is a genetic issue as to whether one likes the taste or doesn't like it.

440 [Debby}, I never though of combining steak with heavy cream before grilling. How does that turn out?

441 >>> That right there what Emmie said, gristle in chicken salads too.

To make chicken salad I start with one of those cheap roast chickens at the store and just pull the meat off. No bone or tendon.

442 Smoked whitefish on matzoh or water crackers, over a layer of mayo. Top with fresh dill, tons of it.

443 Publius bought a dozen ears of corn and made creamed corn. His daddy ate 3 helpings. Clearly stole the show from the grilled ribeye, at least as far as he was concerned!

444 As implied by a number of 'rons above, pike is good, but walleye > pike. It's not even close. Freshwater perch scores high too, but walleye is the top, the Colosseum, the Louvre Museum.

445 >>>Walleye is too damn delicious to do anything than pan fry in a cast iron skillet.

>Love the walleye. Sauger need an honorable mention here too, I think.

Very late to dinner, but this is another pair of fish that are similar enough to crossbreed, like Northern Pike and Muskie.

The result here is a Saugeye. Which are not sterile, so calling the two fish different species may be incorrect. Or at least incorrect-ish.
