Wild Side Gourmet: Sautéed Sauger

Wild Side Gourmet Tom Pardue is a good man to know. You know what they say, be sure to make friends with the chef! Today Tom and Miss Phyllis serve up some savory sauger.

Ingredients:

sauger fillets
salt
pepper
butter
olive oil
white wine

Wash sauger fillets thoroughly and pat dry. Season to taste with salt and pepper.  In a large pan or skillet, heat equal parts butter and oil (about 3 tablespoons each) until hot.

Place sauger fillets in oil and butter mixture. Cook the fish for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until the meat is firm and flaky. The actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fillets.

Just before serving, add 1/2 cup of white wine and simmer briefly. (The wine is optional; chicken or vegetable stock can be used as a substitute.)  Serve hot with rice and steamed vegetables.
