The restaurant’s Executive Chef Lisa Elbe recommends a customer favorite, the Red River Walleye with Frangelico Blanc. A variety of popular Lakefront craft beers go well with this tasty seafood entrée, adds Dave Richmond, global brand manager at Beer Capitol Distributing – Lake Country. Here are tips from Chef Elbe on how to prepare the dish:
Red River Walleye with Frangelico Blanc and Warm Spinach Salad
· 1 cup cider vinegar
· 1 cup Frangelico Liqueur
· 1 shallot
· 4 whole peppercorns
· 1 sprig fresh thyme
· 1 cup heavy whipping cream
· 2 6 to 8 ounce walleye fillets
· 4 ounces toasted almonds
· 4 ounces Panko breadcrumbs
· 2 eggs
· ½ cup milk
· 4 cups spinach
· ½ red onion, sliced
· 3 cups diced Yukon Gold potato, partly cooked al dente
· 2 cups thick-sliced applewood smoked bacon
· Kosher salt
· Fresh ground pepper
1. In saucepot, bring to a boil the Frangelico, cider vinegar, shallot, black peppercorns and thyme, reducing the volume by half.
2. Add heavy cream to the saucepot and reduce by half again. Set mixture off to the side.
3. In another container whisk together the eggs and milk.
4. Combine Panko breadcrumbs with crushed almonds.
5. Dredge each walleye fillet in egg mix, then almond/Panko mix.
6. Heat a sauté pan on medium-high, adding a few drops of olive oil.
7. Sauté the walleye fillet, meat side down until golden. Turn over and sauté the other side until golden for a total cooking time of about 8-10 minutes per fillet.
8. Warm reserved Frangelico Blanc. Wisk in 1 tablespoon cold butter and keep warm.
9. In second sauté pan cook bacon 50 percent, then add onion and potato. Cook until bacon is crisp and potato is heated through.
10. Toss spinach with sautéed ingredients and season with kosher salt and fresh black pepper.
11. Lightly cover the sautéed walleye with the reserved Frangelico Blanc and serve the tossed spinach on the side.
When enjoying your meal, Beer Capitol Distributing – Lake Country suggests a red lager or wheat beer to complement the sweetness of the hazelnut blanc and earthiness of the spinach salad. Also consider choosing a hoppy IPA, as the richness of the sautéed fish will stand up well to the brew’s hops.
Here are several locally brewed Lakefront craft beers to consider:
· Lakefront Riverwest Stein – The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt and a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Cascade hoppiness, which cut through the malt character, leaving a clean palate, which beckons for more.
· Lakefront Wheat Monkey – Crisp and refreshing, this American Wheat Ale has an aroma enhanced by fruity house ale yeast, with baked bread flavors that are perfectly balanced with a Cascade hop addition.
· Lakefront IPA – American Cascade and Chinook hops dominate the aroma of this India Pale Ale, yielding a citrus, floral bouquet. The hops give a nice bitter bite to the flavor, while still offering a well-balanced beer with a full body and smooth malt flavor. It finishes smooth and crisp with a lingering hop flavor reminiscent of fresh ruby red grapefruit.
