I brought back some Blackfin Tuna from my recent trip to Venice Louisiana. My good friend Ken caught them while fishing offshore and was nice enough to share some with me. The steaks were frozen in vacuum sealed bags, but when I thawed them out I was surprised to see that instead of bright red meat, it had turned more of a brownish color. I researched this and found out that this is typical for frozen tuna unless you add CO2 or something to the bag…anyway I was confounded

Here is a simple recipe that I love for salmon or steelhead. The first and most important part of this recipe is to start with a quality piece of fish. You will never get a farm raised fish to taste as good as a wild caught one, and it is even better if you can catch and prepare your own - always better than store bought. The fish we used on this recipie was caught earlier on the same day! Ingredients: 1. Truffle Salt 2. Lime flavored olive oil 3. 1 Lime 4. Cracked Pepper Fi
The BMO staff hit the lake this past Sunday to catch some Crappie and Perch for a fish fry. We were able to land 13 crappie and 19 nice perch, more than enough for a small fish fry. The purpose of this fish fry was to compare which batter mix we prefer: Cornmeal or “Pride of the West all purpose batter” I have always been partial to cornmeal, but the rest of the crew swears by “Pride of the West” We filleted the fish, rinsed them clean and I prepared the batter. For th
Teal are a fairly small duck, so there is not a lot of meat on the breast, but what is there is very tasty if cooked correctly, and can be sliced off the breast and served as a delicious appetizer over the Holiday season! Here is how a prepared mine this year. First, I take the whole breast out of the Teal. Some like to cut the breast meat from the bone, but I feel as though you waste some of the meat that way, and with a teal, there is not much extra. Plus I think they ar
Here is a quick “How To” on how I cold smoke cheese. It is pretty simple, and the end result is delicious. 1. Buy a couple blocks of cheese - don’t skimp and buy the cheap stuff - you will be happier if you spend a few extra bucks and get a quality cheese. For this session I chose a large block of Tillamook Cheddar and a small block of Tillamook Monterey Jack. I also threw in some Almonds just to see how they would turn out. 2. Cut the block of cheese into portions. You

This is one of my Fall favorites. Ingredients: 5-6 large sweet onions ( I use Walla-Walla Sweets but any sweet white onion will do ) 1 Stick of butter 1 six pack of beer ( Your Choice ) 14 Brats 1 Extra large cast iron Skillet. ( Does not have to be cast iron, but I like them) The first step is to slice up five or six large Walla Walla Sweet Onions. Slice them thick because the will really cook down. Melt a stick of butter in your skillet and add the onions. At this poin
