There are some food things that make me say, “Yuck.”
Lunch meat that doesn’t come from the deli (don’t ask), canned vegetables (no explanation needed), and recipes that call for condensed soup (I can’t stand the “glug” noise they make)…
And I have to add tartar sauce that comes in a jar.
So, I have been making my homemade tartar (some version of it) ever since I met my husband and he has been bringing home some amazing walleye from Canada. If it was up to him we would fry it in a crap ton of oil and call it a day, but after one fish fry night I have to put my foot down or I am going to have to call myself Chubby Mommy .
So, Cedar Plank Walleye and Homemade Tartar it is!
Here’s What You Do:
Stir all the ingredients and then season to taste with herbs and lemon.
*If you don’ have fresh dill subtract that and the seasoned salt and replace with a bright seasoning like Country French Vinaigrette or Sunny Paris by Penzey’s.
To Cedar Plank a Fish*:
Soak the plank in water all day. I used a small dish to keep it submerged in the water. Heat the grill to medium-medium high. Lightly rub olive oil on the fish and season according to your taste. Shut the grill and cook for about ten minutes. Standby! Small fires have been known to start on our grill when my husband grills ours
*I used a walleye, but any white fish will work. Of course adjust the time by the thickness of the fish.
I know you might be thinking fish + kids-Really?! Well, my four year old actually likes fish because we play up fishing and how cool it is to eat fish. Try it-just may work at your house too! If not, you could always make some rice and stir in the fish with the old bait and switch technique .
