Minnesota DNR Officials Share Their Favorite Winter Fish Recipes

In the late 1980s, Minnesota conservation officers, formerly widely known as game wardens, came together to share their favorite tried and true fish, wild game, soup, bread, and other unique recipes. The recipes were compiled into the Minnesota Game Wardens’ Cookbook, published in 1989.

In this week’s episode, Outdoor News Podcast hosts Kalli Hawkins & Joe Friedrichs recreate the 1980s cookbook by talking with three Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials along the North Shore of Lake Superior to share their favorite methods for preparing and cooking fish.

Hawkins and Friedrichs also head out in the field with fishing poles, canned pickled pike, and an avocado in hand to share a favorite prepared meal.
