Baked Stuffed Lake Trout, Salmon or Walleyed Pike Recipe
Marjoram goes well with fish, and here's a recipe that uses it both in and on the fish.
A whole baked fish on a garnished platter always looks good to guests.
Instructions:1. Neither lake trout nor salmon need be scaled, but do scale the pike.
2. Salt and pepper the fish inside and out, then stuff it and sew up or skewer the opening.
3. Place in a buttered pan and lay lemon slices along its length.
4. Stick a toothpick in each slice.
5. Add the vegetables, marjoram, bay leaf, and white wine and bake, uncovered, for about 35 minutes in a 400 degree oven, basting first with the melted butter and then with the liquid in the pan.
1. Saute the chopped celery and onions in butter in a small skillet for 15 minutes, until tender but still with a little bite.
2. Add the chopped celery tops and the bread crumbs.
3. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and savory. Makes 1 cup.
