THE CAPTAIN'S RECIPES (NOW THAT YOU CaUGHT THEM WHAT NEXT?)

Canned Salmon

  • Filet and skin fish (No need to worry about removing bones they will cook up in the canning process and are actually a good source of calcium.)
  • Fill pint jar half full with fish than add:   
  • 1/2 teaspoon pickling salt 
  • 1 teaspoon ketchup   
  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil   
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar  
  •  Finish filling jar with fish and seal
  • Pressure cook 100 minutes at 10 lbs. pressure. 
  • Let cool.    
  •  (an 18 lb. salmon will yield approximately 8 pints.) 


 A CAPTAIN'S FAVORITE IS TO REPLACE THE KETCHUP WITH BBQ SAUCE AND ADD A SMALL PIECE OF SMOKED SALMON TO EACH JAR.

RANCH GRILLED SALMON

Take one filet of salmon lay on tin foil and curl up the edges to make a boat.  

Than sprinkle a dash of salt and pepper to entire filet to taste.

Lightly cover filet with brown sugar (optional)

Cover the filet generously with ranch dressing (I like Hidden Valley©)

Heat grill to 350° and place tin-foil and filet on rack.

Cook for about 30 minutes covered.

Periodically check the heat keeping it close to 350°

Check the fish with a fork and see if the filet flakes open.

  • 2 1/2 to 3 gal water
