Smoked Lake Trout

The oily nature of Lake Trout fillets make it a perfect vessel for holding smoke. In this recipe by Jamie Carlson as featured in the Outdoor News Taste of the Wild, you combine a dry brine and directions on the ideal cook time for smoking the fish. Lake trout served up with some pickled onions and whole grain mustard is a great snack.

Chimichurri Venison Tacos

Tacos are a great summer crowd-pleaser because each person can adjust the fixings to suit their taste buds. The simple chimichurri sauce adds a ton of fresh herby flavors and a zing of acidity by itself. But some other great toppings that work with this recipe include grilled onions, pico de gallo, avocado, a good crumbly cheese (e.g., queso fresco, cotija), or corn salsa. It’s the perfect summer meal to use up some of last fall’s venison and impress your friends.
