Food Fight Friday: Brown Trout vs Fish Tacos
By David Draper
We’ve been on an extended run of reader-submitted Food Fight photos and it continues this week with two fishy pics. So let’s skip the filler and go right to the meat of the matter. Cast your votes for the fish dish you’d most like to tuck into right now.
Kevin Albrecht’s Brown Trout
I applaud reader Kevin Albrecht for being an unapologetic catch-and-eat angler. He pulled these nice browns from a spring creek in the Driftless Region of southwest Wisconsin and, like a true wild chef, instead of releasing them, Albrecht stuffed them with lemon, covered them in Cajun breading, and put them on the grill. Bravo, Kevin.
MaxPower’s Fish Tacos
“I built these from some halibut I'd caught in Alaska. Rather than the battered-fried route, I prefer it just plain roasted in the oven or off the grill. Put on some corn tortillas and coupled with any assortment of toppings including red cabbage, red or white onions, mango, cilantro, and drizzled with some homemade chipotle mayo. Pictures never do them justice (just like the outdoors). I eat these until gluttony has worn me right out. Enjoy.”
