This Saturday on the Weekend Morning Show - Pickerel with Raki, a Turkish recipe

This morning on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with guest host Ismaila Alfa, I had the pleasure of presenting this very easy to prepare pickerel dish in the Turkish fashion. Fresh Pickerel is now in season and available at Gimli Fish. Enjoy this healthy method of preparing the sweet fish.

Pickerel with Raki

4 filets pickerel
2 tomatoes
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 cup (less) olive oil
2 bay leaves
3/4 cup fish stock
salt and white pepper, to taste
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 bunch dill
2 tsp raki (Ouzo)

Heat skillet and sauté the garlic and add the onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add bay leaves. Add the vegetables, pour over the stock and simmer for 2 minutes

Season the fish with salt and pepper and place on top of the vegetables. Simmer for about 4 minutes. Chop the dill. Add lemon juice, chopped dill and raki and simmer for about 2 minutes. Arrange the fish and vegetables on a serving dish and serve immediately.
