Fried Fish: Pan

 

Fried Fish: Pan

 

fish

A Northern Ontario classic. I’m sure at least one member of each family in this province has their own special fried fish recipe. Here’s mine!

4-6 fish filets of your choosing
Vegetable oil
½ cup flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
¼ cup cornmeal
¼ cup bread crumbs
1 tsp mustard powder
1 tsp chili powder
2 eggs

First step to fried fish, mix your flour and cornstarch. Season generously with salt and pepper
Next, mix cornmeal and bread crumbs with seasonings and salt and pepper
Whisk eggs, add a splash of water to thin. 
Heat your pan over medium heat with ¼ inch of oil

 

This will be a three step breading process.
Start with the flour, then dip in eggs, finally coat with cornmeal mixture. 
Place fish in frying pan, cook until golden brown on both sides.

Put your own spin on the Fried Fish classic, and enjoy!

Spring at Lake Lauzon

Now that spring is here, our thoughts may tend to start returning to summer. We here at Lake Lauzon Resort know the North Shore of Lake Huron is a fantastic place to enjoy many summer sports and pastimes. Paddle and wind based water sport enthusiasts thrive in this area, as do anglers, cyclists, and beach or sun lovers in general. Four Sands beach on Lake Huron is just minutes away. See you this spring or summer! 

Spring at the Bed and Breakfast

Lake Lauzon Resort and Marine’s Bed and Breakfast is open year-round. With the warm sun coming into our dining room windows, some might say the lodge is most beautiful in the spring time. Sitting on the porch for a little (maybe too early, but who cares) sun bathing, or taking a stroll along the shore to watch the ice recede is a great way to spend a spring night or two.  Delicious fresh-made breakfast will await you in the morning. 

My Favourite Things #6

In the summer it is only a short stroll to Lake Lauzon Public Beach. Packing a lunch and walking to the beach is a great way of getting out and enjoying the sun. As one of my favourite things, Lake Lauzon beach is a perfect spot for families. There are picnic tables, a playground, a public boat launch and washrooms available to the public. If you are looking for a grander beach outing, Lake Huron and Four Sands Beach is only a 5 minute drive west toward Blind River.

Water Over the Dam

Oct192013 154

The dam that leads from Lake Lauzon into the brook that flows into Lake Huron is on the outside part of Lake Lauzon Resort's property. Already this year with the small amount of thawing we've seen the water is already overflowing the brooks regular boundaries and has been flooding the land around. If we are seeing this much water already, who knows how wet our spring will be… 

Check out Lake Lauzon Resort's facebook page to watch a video of the flood.

Cabin Cooking

If you are planning a trip to a remote cabin, whatever the season, recipe selection requires a little bit of thought and planning. Especially if you are hiking, boating, skiing, or traveling by any other human powered means, the weight of your meals is something to consider, as there likely won’t be a grocery store nearby. The website below offers a few suggestions for tasty and energy-loaded recipes for your next cabin retreat. A few tips: prepare as much as you can ahead of time (e.g., spice mixes, soup mixes, bread dough) and if you will have a wood oven at your disposal, base your recipes around that.

Check out this link to see what TheKitchn.com recommends to cook at the cabin. 

Spring is Near

It’s officially March and even though we have loads of snow and many more storms in the forecast spring is at arm’s reach. In the past, we’ve seen signs of spring by St-Patrick’s day. It doesn’t seem like we’ll be this lucky this year, but at least we’re getting there. Hopefully by April we’ll be seeing the birds, the flowers and the lake.

The Birds of Lake Lauzon

Larus-delawarensis-021

The Lake Huron Centre For Coastal Conservation has a webpage on Lake Huron’s coastal bird population. It states that “Lake Huron is home to a number of migratory and colonial waterbirds" and the "health and abundance of these birds can give us clues about the health of the coastal environment.” The page then goes on to introduce a few of the birds commonly found in the area, such as the Caspian Tern or the Herring Gull. Check out the website for more information on coastal Lake Huron birds.

My Favourite Things #4

Of all my favourite things at Lake Lauzon Resort, this one is the most relaxing. There is nothing like jumping off the dock and swimming out to Lake Lauzon Resort's large floating raft. When you're out there it feels like you are miles away, even though you're just a short swim to shore. If you're not alone, it's a great place for chatting, games and cannon balls off the dock. Being out on the raft is a great way to spend a sunny summer afternoon.

Made Man online magazine is a popular source for all things entertainment, sports, food & drink and style. They have recently posted a list of the 10 Best Hiking Trails in Canada. The good news… Blind River's very own Boom Camp has been placed at number 5. We have known for years how great the Boom Camp is, but it is great to see the rest of Canada is recognizing it too. 

Made Man writes: "The 10 best hiking trails in Canada are not necessarily the most difficult to find. Canada is a country rich in beauty making their wilderness and trails a delight to tackle. Enjoy breathtaking views when hiking trails in Canada. Close to Blind River, Ontario, this hiking trail in Canada is mainly for intermediate hikers.
