3 of the Best Spots for Fish Boils in Wisconsin
The “Door County Fish Boil” consists of fresh locally caught Whitefish cut into steaks, small baby red potatoes and sweet boiling onions. The ingredients are boiled to perfection outdoors in large stainless steel kettles over a wood fire. Salt is the only seasoning used, although it’s primary function is to increase the boiling temperature of the water. During the cooking process, the fish oils naturally rise to the surface of the water. Immediately before removing the fish, potatoes, and onions from the kettle, the “Master Boiler” will throw #1 fuel oil directly into the fire beneath the kettle, resulting in a tremendous burst of flames that force the water and fish oils to “Boil Over” the rim of the kettle. This signals the end of the cooking process and the beginning of a wonderful dining experience.
