Grant went fishing today to try to increase our pike supply in the freezer, but didn't have much luck. He did come home with a lovely Kokanee salmon, though. This was a nice one. I know we would've been doing backflips if we caught one this big on Bitterroot Lake in the Flathead.
It's a good thing he caught it because I wasn't able to cook the turkey as I planned. I hate to handle poultry when I have a baby hanging on my leg, and John didn't give me the chance to pop it in the oven. (The corned beef was another story. That only took 30 minutes.)
I like to slice onions and place them inside of the fish when baking it, but Grant prefers it without. So tonight I put in a little pat of butter, salt and dill. Then I baked it at 425 for 25 minutes. It was perfect. Very creamy flesh, almost buttery. Excellent meal! Grant's hoping to head back to try to sack up some more before the ice is off at the end of the season, but I suppose we need to be careful not to smoke our fish before they're caught!
