A Wisconsin Fish Boil

Tonight we had our 1st Annual Family Corn Roast
and Fish Boil,
featuring sweet corn, red potatoes and onions from the garden.
The corn soaked in salt water for 20 hours, and then was roasted over the open fire until it looked like it was totally burnt.

The little bit that chars is actually the best part.
Roasted corn has just enough of a different taste
than boiled corn that it is totally worth the effort.

Usually a fish boil uses whitefish or lake trout.
We substituted a fresh caught King Salmon.

For 10 people
Bring to a rolling boil, 2 gallons of water
1 cup salt
3 Tbl. Old Bay Seasoning
(in the seasoning section at grocery store)
3 bay leaves
1 Tbl. ground white pepper

Add 20 whole small red potatoes and 6 carrots.
Boil 15 minutes.

Add 10 medium peeled whole onions
Keep boiling 10 more minutes.

Add salmon serving size chunked, with skin on.
(Ours was a 14 lb-er)
Keep boiling 10 more minutes.

Serve with melted butter.

I can't describe to you how good it was!
(the picture does not do it justice)

A wiffle ball game and popsicle for dessert.
It doesn't get any better than this.......
