Walleye & Potato Stew With Herbed Biscuits

by Chef Lucia Watson


This is an easy one, although it takes a little time. Substitute any nice white-fleshed fish — catfish, pike, bass — for the walleye.


To serve four . . .


1 tbsp. butter

2 strips bacon, cut small

1 med. onion, med. dice


2 stalks celery with leaves, med. dice

2 carrots, med. dice

3 cloves garlic, minced


4 med. potatoes, med. dice

11⁄2 tsp. dry or 1 tbsp. fresh thyme

2 tbsp. flour

2 c. chicken stock

2 c. milk

1 c. heavy cream

1/4 c. dry white wine

dash Tabasco

salt and pepper to taste

1 lb. walleye cut into 1-inch pieces

juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tbsp. parsley, finely chopped

'¢ Place the butter and bacon in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the bacon starts to brown.

'¢ Add the onion, carrot, celery, garlic, thyme, and potatoes and cook covered, stirring often, for about 10 minutes.

'¢ Add the flour and cook 2 to 3 more minutes. Add the chicken stock, milk, cream, wine, Tabasco, salt and pepper.

'¢ Cook the stew uncovered, stirring often for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

'¢ Toss the walleye with the lemon and parsley and gently stir into the stew. Cook another 10 to 12 minutes, stirring gently until the walleye is tender. Serve at once in big bowls with herb biscuits.
