Episode 12, 8/14/23
In this episode, The Fish Dish takes the kitchen to the beach – Wisconsin Point Beach, to be exact, along the shore of Lake Superior. With summer full upon us, we thought it would be fun to bring you along on a classic dining experience: the shore lunch. Joining us were Emma Hauser, an aquaculture outreach and education specialist with Sea Grant and the Northern Aquaculture Demonstration Facility; Russ, intrepid taste-tester and Fish Dish volunteer; and Jojo Hunt and Crow Idnani — two summer scholars who are working with Sharon and Emma to learn strategies for engaging a variety of audiences in local food-fish production.
There’s no typical Fish-o-Licious part of our show this time because the whole episode is about cooking fish. But never fear, you can find the two sauce recipes that we mention during the podcast on this page.
