Much like a cottage or shepherd’s pie, my easy fisherman pie is one amazing meal that you must try.

What is the difference you ask?

Well, this easy fisherman pie recipe is made with fish instead. We absolutely love this for our Friday supper or Sunday lunch.

You can even mix different types of fish, depending on which one is in season and creates a meal fit for a king or a queen.

  • 16oz (500 g)Wild Alaskan Pacific Cod
  • 10 oz (300g) Wild Alaskan Rockfish
  • 2 cups (475 ml) Whole Milk
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • SAUCE
  • 2 tablespoons (28 g) unsalted butter
  • 3-4 tbsp (30 to 40 g) plain, all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups (600ml) Whole Milk, splash more if needed
  • 3.5 oz (100 g) grated Swiss cheese, or any on hand like sharp cheddar, grated gruyère cheese, etc,
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • Generous pinch of salt and freshly ground pepper
  • TOPPING
  • ⅓ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish and adding on the fish
  • 4-5 hard-boiled eggs, sliced in half
  • 3 oz swiss cheese (or grated gruyère cheese)

Instructions

POTATOES

  1. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Place in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Season with salt. Place over medium-high heat and bring to the boil. Cook for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are just tender when you pierce it with the fork.
  2. To cooked and drained potatoes, add about 1/2 cup or 118 ml of half and half, and 3 tablespoons the unsalted butter. Crush the potatoes, an and combine with half and half (or cream, milk) and butter until smooth. It doesn't have to be perfectly smooth. Lumps are welcome for this dish. Set aside.

FISH PREP

  1. If the fish is frozen, defrost it. You may leave it overnight in the fridge.
  2. Place all fish and chopped onion in a large saucepan. Cover with milk. Place over medium-low heat and bring to a slow simmer. Poach fish for about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer fish to a baking dish. Strain the milk into a bowl and discard excess. Set aside to cool. By the way, I remove skin, however I like to add in the pot with the fish just to add more flavor. After poaching discard it.

SAUCE

  1. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan over low heat and stir in the flour. Add milk bit by bit, stirring after every addition until you have a smooth, silky sauce. Bring to the rolling boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook for 6 to 10 minutes, or until thickened.
  2. Add in the grated cheese, then squeeze in the lemon juice and keep stirring until the cheese is melted. Season with salt and little black pepper, then remove from the heat.

ASSEMBLY

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
  2. Place fish in the baking dish, pour over with the sauce, then add some cheese, equally scatter about the handful of swiss cheese.
  3. Chop into smaller pieces hard boiled eggs then add them over fish. Add a bit of chopped parsley.
  4. Spoon or pipe the mashed potato over the fish, starting at the edge of the dish and working inwards. Scatter with cheese over the top and bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, the sauce is bubbling up at the sides and the top is golden.
  5. Allow it to cool down for at least 10 minutes and served with vegetables such as spinach, peas, and carrots, etc. or maybe just a bowl of mixed green.

Notes

  • You can use any fish that you prefer or like, and throw in shrimps as well. It’s absolutely phenomenal. The most popular fish is white fish such as haddock or cod, salmon and shrimp. I have seen it with crab as well, but I say use whatever fish you go. Also, use of that is more affordable to you.
  • There is no right or wrong. I believe that everyone have their own household staple fierman pie. Some using wine, some spinach, peas or mushrooms, etc.
  • I use fish, white creamy sauce, boiled eggs, cheese and mashed potatoes. That's how my family likes it so I am making it this way.
  • Over time it will be easier and easier to prep and make this dish but it is really not complicated.
  • You can make this in dutch oven as well.

Smoked St. Louis Style Ribs

Can you really start BBQ season without making some amazingly delicious, and finger licking Smoked St. Louis Style Ribs? I think not.

These ribs are so tasty we have been making them on repeat for our meal prep because they hold so good o the fridge so well for a week.

Although it is consistently really hard keeping these in the fridge for more than 3 days because when you have growing kids in the house, the fridge is pretty much empty all the time, even though I just went grocery shopping 10 minutes ago.

Smoked St. Louis Style Ribs

Welcome to a life with teenagers. They eat like babies, every two hours.

But… hey, the food is here to be shared and enjoyed so that what we all do. I love seeing everyone devouring my food. That makes my heart full and happy.

These ribs are extremely good. I am an enormous fan of grilled food, in particular, a longtime fan of outdoor cooking. I feel like the food always comes on point when it’s cooked on the grill.

Tips:

Once the ribs have been seasoned, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least eight hours. When the ribs to rest in the dry seasonings the flavor has the time to fully penetrate the meat.

A smoker is the most common way to prepare ribs but almost any grill can be made into an indirect smoker and used for longer cooking times.

However, for a charcoal grill, simply build your fire to one side of the grill and cook on the other. Placing a small pan with water underneath your food will also help develop a bit of smokiness.

Smoked St. Louis Style Ribs

Ribs taste the best if they are cooked low and slow. Most meat will benefit from being wrapped in foil if you plan to cook for more than 2 hours.

Baby back ribs will take about four hours to cook while St. Louis cut ribs will cook in approximately five hours.

Can you really start BBQ season without making some amazingly delicious, and finger licking Smoked St. Louis Style Ribs? I think not.
These ribs are so tasty we have been making them on repeat for our meal prep because they hold so good o the fridge so well for a week.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pork St. Louis Style Ribs, tear membrane off
  • 1-2 tablespoon Oil
  • Dry Rub Seasoning:
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Dry Mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • BBQ Sauce, currently we are using sugar-free but you may use whatever you like or prefer.

Instructions

MAKE AHEAD:

1. Combine well all the ingredients for the dry rub, then coat both sides of ribs with a good drizzle of oil and sprinkle with seasoning rub.

2. Place the ribs in the fridge overnight or refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Make sure to tear the membrane off the ribs before seasoning it.

Grill and Smoke:

1. When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. Smoke the ribs, meat-side up for 2 hours.

2. Remove from the smoker and tightly wrap the ribs with the foil.

3. Return the foiled ribs to the grill and cook for two more hours at an increased temperature to 250℉. After two hours carefully remove the foil. Watch for the steam.

4. Brush the ribs well on both sides with BBQ sauce. Arrange the ribs directly on the grill grate and continue to grill until the sauce tightens 40 minutes. You can add BBQ sauce the last minute if you prefer, but we love the caramelization. It's all about your personal preference.

Rest:

Allow the ribs to rest for about 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Notes

Cooking times will vary depending on the temperature that you set and the environment.

You may use other cuts of ribs, but the smoking or grilling time will vary.

Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon

Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon

Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon Recipe

Who loves Salmon? I simply love it especially made this way. However, I am not picky at all. When it comes down to this delicious fish, I could eat it pretty much any possible way prepared.

I really try to make fish and serve it to my family at least once a week. One tip though, always get salmon that is Wild caught, opposed to getting the one that is farm raised.

You would think that they taste the same, and you are getting identical nutrition, but no, there is a difference.

Lemon Herb Grilled Salmon Recipe

Do not get me wrong, I bought a farm-raised salmon many times, but I try to get wild caught when it is avalable to me.

Atlantic salmon and Pacific salmon look similar on the outside. But between species and even within the same species, each type of salmon can have different flavors, textures, and flesh color.

Again depends on my availability, I switch between Atlantic and Pacific Salmon. Now, if the salmon is frozen, try to defrost it. For quick-thawing, place frozen package in cool water for approximately 20 minutes. Once deforsted, immediately cook or refrigerate.

Author Sandra | Sandra’s Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds Salmon with skin
  • 1/2 tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Freshly Chopped Dill
  • 1 teaspoon Freshly Chopped Parsley
  • Lemon slices for the garnish
  • Wood pellets: MESQUITE or HICKORY

Instructions

  1. When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  2. Combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, softened unsalted butter, dill, parsley, sea salt, and ground black pepper.
  3. Generously slather the top of the salmon fillet with the mixture and top with a slice of lemon. You may allow marinating for about 10 minutes or so to absorb the mixture.
  4. Place the salmon fillets on the hot grill grate, skin-side facing down.
  5. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes, until it reaches an internal temperature of 145F and flakes easily, or until the salmon is cooked to your preferred taste.

    Serve with Lemon slices and perhaps garlic-butter dip

Recipe Notes

How long do you cook salmon in the oven?

  • It will depend on the size and the thickness of your salmon, of course. If your filet is thick I’d say about 25 minutes in the oven at 400ºF. But it has a normal size I would say about 15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with a fork.
