Asian Trout and Ramen - Today’s Catch!!

I had the entertain the kiddo after school today so we decided to go catch some trout. We limited out (7) in an hour...and then learned a valuable lesson about playing with the fish stringer. So we had to catch some more. 



Then we had had a little talk with the “fish police” when we got back to the car. 

Back to the house. Cleaned and prepped with some sesame oil, soy sauce, salt and pepper on a cedar plank to go with the soup. Indirect at 375 until in the 120s then pulled and foiled. 


Served with ramen. First time she got to be a part of the whole process from field to table. Proud of my little fisherman today.

    Oh my goodness, How sweet is that!  Me and Mrs. Bucky are so looking foward to gradparentness.  In fact Cindy has already adopted a kinda grandkid.  Of course as my daughter says she is a "kid magnet" I have better luck with the 10 to 13 year olds.  It works for us.

    Outfrikkinstanding! We’ve been eating a fair bit of ramen recently but have not tried it at home yet. 

    The egg is one of the highlights in a bowl. How did you do make them?

  • @jdkeithbge I kind of just winged the ramen but here was the general idea. Sauté some onion, garlic, jalapeño slices, and shiitake mushrooms. Then reduce heat, add chicken and beef broth, soy sauce, and some heat (I used Thai red curry paste and chili pepper paste). Simmer for a while and add some cooked meat. Tonight I did rotisserie chicken but usually leftover cubed pork. Toss ramen in for a few minutes and plate. I topped with some Asian micro greens, sesame seeds, and a soft boiled egg. 

    @caliking those eggs are pretty easy. Get a pot boiling. Carefully put an egg straight from the fridge in the water. 7 1/2 minutes and toss in an ice bath for 5.

    @The_Stache the Harpeth. Caney Fork is Catch and Release until April I think. Everything they dumped in there this week they expect to breed. These won’t live much past early May.

    Great post buddy, lots of fun right there. One question, those fish didn't look Asian to me.  =)

    Two “good job” comments on the same thread. Either this is the @bgebrent new Double Seal Of Approval or Nicole has quite a few years ahead telling you you’re missing glasses are on top of your head.  ;);)
