Taste of Wisconsin Waters
The Fish Dish traveled to Madison for an invitation-only event held in October of 2022 that celebrated Wisconsin’s water, from drinking water to businesses that depend on water for their livelihood. These include commercial fishing and aquaculture.
“A Taste of Wisconsin Waters” was a first-ever event organized by none other than Sharon. Plus, for the “Fish-o-Licious” part of our show, we discuss fish roe – specifically, cisco roe – and how it can be used in recipes as a caviar substitute. Sharon and Marie prepare saffron-garlic aioli crostini appetizers.
