Two Of My Favorites! Broiled Walleye, And Pound Cake..




I try not to go to Sams' Club more than once a month, as everytime I'm there, I spend about 150.00 bucks! They carry a sharp Pinconning cheese that is the best (made in Michigan!), and I usually find other treats without working at it! They have a decent selection of fish fillets, and they had a pack of three Walleye fillets that had my name on them... To the people wondering what this fish is like, it is a flavorful, fresh water fish popular in northern states and Canada. Mild, firm flesh that flakes easily, it would remind you of lake perch- only bigger! They can get quite large, but best eating size would be a 17 to 21 inch fish. Simply seasoned with salt, pepper, dill, and butter, then broiled skin side down for about 10 minutes- you are in heaven! Lemon, or tartar sauce has been seen accompanying the finished product. Sour cream scalloped potatoes, and steamed broccoli will be there too.
Saturday, my wife attended a play with her sister, so I thought I'd make a couple of small pound cakes. Traditional recipe is 1 pound butter, 1 pound sugar, 1 pound flour, 1 pound of eggs. I added a bit of almond extract and lemon, mixed until consistency right(a long friggin' time!)baked at 300f for 70 minutes- came out great! Topped with a lemon, butter, powdered sugar glaze- it is a simple, rich treat you can eat as is, or add whipped cream or any topping you might think you'd enjoy!
Hope you all are enjoying your week-ends!
P.S.- We don't use paper plates all the time- that's our sons' "to go" plate every Sunday!

I had wallyeyed fish when we was in Wisconsin a few years back, only we had it whole and I had to cover the head with a serviette so it didnt watch me eat it.... it tasted GORGIOUS.....

To day Ive cooked and baked most of the day, besides nipping into the garden and doing some planting.....

In the oven almost ready to come out is garlic and herb chicken lasagne with jacket spuds on the side to go with a salad...... on the top shelf cooking is a Brocolli, tomatoe and cheese quiche made with the freshest eggs from me own chickens :) and grated lancaster cheese on top :).... also made 2 lemon drizzle cakes, 2 carrot cakes, and 2 courgette loafs :)......

and half prepared to shove in the oven when its empty is a lentil mushroom garlic and stilton bake.....

Well one has to bake when the urge takes ya lol

marmy- You have convinced me you are a heck of a cook! All I have to do now is get Doggy Bloggy out of NYC, and you and I learn to speak English we can both understand, and we can all start a restaurant the likes of Earth has never seen!

doggybloggy said...

hot dang that walleye looks great...the ONLY thing that would make it better is if you caught it yourself this morning...

Lemony desserts and me dont go way back...I eat orangy things and sometimes limey but thats about it...and its rare.

pinknest said...

Walter Jeffries said...

Just the other day I was thinking about this title (Opinions & Rectums...) Who wouldn't have one? The ultimate efficiency expert! Okay, gross but...

buffalodickdy said...

Marmy- What a cooking frenzy you just put on!
DogB- Used to fly-in fish in Canada, Take one out of the live box, kill, fillet, and cook it-in the same hour! Never ate better in my life! Today, these were fresh as you could hope for..
Pink- You want in on our restaurant? I forgot to include you, and you know you are welcome to join! You're the prettiest cook/gourmet I've ever seen!

buffalodickdy said...

Walt- Wecome to the blog! I like opinions, rectums are a necessity- but kill me now if I lose either one! Got some neat people who hang out here, no dummies! Everyone gets to practice free speech- as long as they let the others do the same!

Ron said...

Dana said...

Having grown up in Seattle, salmon was always the fish of choice ... until I moved to the midwest and discovered walleye!

Jen said...

That fish looks amazing! I'm telling you that son of yours have the life on Sundays!

Annie said...

It is a sure bet that your son is a frequent visitor. There's nothing like a busy kitchen to keep the kids coming back again and again.

So, will you adopt me?

Akelamalu said...

As you live too far away for me to visit Buff I'm going to visit Marmie instead because she sounds as though she can cook just as good as you!:)

Casdok said...

Another to go here please!! :)

Tanya Kristine said...

awww...what a good hubby.

i'm gettin' a hankerin' for some ahi.

buffalodickdy said...

ake- I'm starting to believe her real name is Mary Poppins...
casdok- Even though he's 27, he works Sundays, 1 mile from our house, so I fix him a plate and have done that for years...
TanyaK- Me too!

Michelle Ann said...

Never heard of a walleye fish...but everything looks delicious as usual.

Jeff B said...

The closest I've come to this is having a walleyed fit, but I suppose that doesn't count.

Looks good as usual. We had fish tonight as well. Breaded catfish. I like to put a bit of yellow mustard in the milk and egg mixture for it.

Roger said...

Nothing wrong with using paper plates! That way ya don't have a bunch of dishes to wash lol!! I use them all the time.

Preposterous Ponderings said...

I could eat pound cake well by the pound!

Love that stuff!

Beth said...

mmmm, walleye. Now that's a fish I WILL eat. I'm not a big fish person, but my late uncle used to fry up walleye all the time. They had a cabin in Canada where they would spend the summers, and had walleye out the wahzoo. He'd fry it up on his grill outside and have hot pepper salad on the side. YUM! Dang, I miss him.

buffalodickdy said...

michelle- With all your options on the seacoast, freshwater fish probably aren't on the menu much!
Jeff- I like catfish, but I like to firm it up by a short marinade in something citrus..
rog- We use them too, for a quick sandwich...
preprop- I like the simple, rich flavor and texture...

Nancy said...

Walleye.. mmmmm I'll have to figure out what that is in French.. I have no clue.. but it sounds and looks very good.

While I was in San Salvadore I had Red Snapper, it was really good. I enjoy fish more than meat actually.

wow! that cake.. just reading that I've gained a couple of pounds! LOL

I better start moving around before I eat that... ;-)

Urban Vegan said...

I love pound cake--especuially with coffee in the morning.

We gave up our BJ's membership after we quickly realized we were not saving any money--becuase we laways ended up spending more than we had planned ;).

Akelamalu said...

I think you may be right Buff!

buffalodickdy said...

nancy- Red snapper is always a treat!
UrbanV- Great with coffee! I gave up my membership once at Sams' for the same reason, but what brought me back was the quality of some of the products they carried that no other local store did!
Ake- You know what I'm talkin' about!

Walleye is definitely something I miss down here--haven't had it in a couple years! My grandpa participated in the walleye tournament every year on Lake Huron(thumb area).
