Instructions
  1. Preheat grill on hot for 5 minutes then turn down to medium low.
  2. Place your fillets skin side down on a sheet of aluminum foil and season with lemon pepper to your liking. We use about 1 Tablespoon per fillet. (Tip: fold the outer edge of the foil up to create an edge around the fillets).
  3. Add a splash of lemon juice for a little extra zip.
  4. Fold another square of aluminum big enough for your asparagus and add asparagus.
  5. Sprinkle salt, pepper and 1-2 Tablespoons of olive oil over asparagus. Toss asparagus until well coated.
  6. Place fish and asparagus on grill and grill with lid close. After 10 minutes check your fish—it will be done when the meat flakes apart with a fork. Check fish every two minutes until it easily flakes apart.
  7. Grill asparagus until blackened to your liking (Tip: if you like your asparagus well done you may want to start it a few minutes before the fish).

The Wife’s Way aka the Two-Pregnancies-Mocha-Chugging-Doctor-Gave-Me-the-Look Way
The Monger’s Way aka Give-Me-All-The-Looks-You-Want-Doc Way

Instructions
Wife's Way
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lay whitefish fillet on an aluminum lined baking sheet.
  3. Mix salt and pepper in mayonnaise, spread thinly over entire whitefish fillet. Add half of the tomatoes over whitefish and mayonnaise.
  4. Bake for 13-15 minutes. The fish will be very moist, so when in doubt take a little nibble to see if done to your liking.
  5. Toast the Pilgrims Homesteader bread lightly. You can substitute in your favorite BLT bread or skip the bread altogether and make a salad instead (I’m sure this is what my doctor would like to see me do……)
  6. Construct your sandwich. I prefer a fork and knife style sandwich, so I layer bread, lettuce, more tomatoes, whitefish and bacon onto the bread.
Monger's Way
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lay fish out on aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Season with lemon pepper.
  3. Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until fish easily flakes. When in doubt take a bit to see if it tastes good.
  4. Toast your bagel or bread.
  5. Mayonnaise your bagel. Add tomato, lettuce, bacon and whitefish. Eat.

Ingredients
Tacos
Cabbage Lime Cilantro Slaw
Servings:
Instructions
For the Tacos
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lay fish fillets on a foil covered baking sheet, skin side down.
  2. Mix together the cumin, paprika, coriander, salt and garlic powder into a small bowl.
  3. Mix the dry ingredients with the olive oil. If you’d rather skip the olive oil you can, we use it to evenly coat the fillets.
  4. Spread the seasoning evenly over the fish fillets.
  5. Place fish in oven and bake until easily flakes (15 minutes for whitefish, 20 for salmon). Baking time will vary based on thickness of fish, so I always recommend checking at 12 minutes and every 3-4 minutes after that.
For the Slaw
  1. Mix cilantro, mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, salt and garlic clove into bowl.
  2. Fold in shredded cabbage and carrot.
  3. Warm tortillas in oven.
  4. Assemble fish tacos by layering first the cabbage slaw, then the baked salmon
Recipe Notes

The Lime-Cilantro Slaw is a dish that can be made ahead and allowed to rest. The flavors do get better with time.
