Submissions are based on “skill� and knowledge level of grades, i.e. a 5th grader has more expertise on Meats, etc., than a Kindergarten student whose knowledge is more familiar with Desserts. It also helps to prevent too many of the same category of recipes submitted if categories are broken down by grade level.

Beef, Poultry & Seafood Submitted by Fifth Grade Students & their parents

Art by: Dee Dee Davids, 5th Grade, Mr. Josephs class “Sometimes my dad and I fish on Lake Michigan for Salmon & bring them home. They are pretty big, like 2 feet long or MORE!! Then he and my mom filet it (that’s when they scrape the scales off the body with a knife, then cut off the head and open it up and clean it out) and remove the bones with tweezers and pliers. If we don’t catch any, then we will buy Salmon filets at the store and bake it. I’m old enough now to help them filet the Salmon my dad catches AND they let me bake it with all the ingredients alone now!!”

Seafood Baked Salmon submitted by Dee Dee Davids Ingredients: 1 large Salmon filet (about 1 foot long or more, with skin on) 1 cup Butter melted (you can microwave it in a coffee cup) 1 cup White Wine ¼ cup Capers ½ cup Lemon Juice (from the bottle is ok) Large baking pan, enough to fit the Salmon in Tin foil to make a “tent” top

Directions: Run your fingertip over the center and outer parts of the Salmon to make sure all the bones are out. If you run across one, remove it with tweezers. Put the Salmon skin side down into baking pan. Pour over all the ingredients, and lift the Salmon up with a fork to make sure that the liquids get underneath too. Form a tent with tin foil over the Salmon to keep the steam from escaping, it should be pretty loose and just resting on top of Salmon. Bake 350*F for about 20 min., until fish is very light pink and flakey. Slice with a spatula, and when putting on plate, carefully remove underside “skin”. Pour some of the liquid & capers over each fish portion.

Fish Taco’s submitted by: Genova Cohen Ingredients: Corn or Flour Tortilla’s Frozen Beer Batter fish filets, baked according to package directions OR Cod Filets Large plate of Flour Pancake mix made with Regular or dark Beer instead of water Shredded Cabbage or Lettuce Oil in large pan, about 1 inch or so, or a deep fryer

Sauce Ingredients: 1 Cup Mayonnaise ¼ cup diced Cilantro Salt and Pepper to taste Little bit of Tomato Paste or Sauce to make it pink Jalapeno Pepper, sliced and remove seeds, then diced up. 2 Garlic cloves diced up real fine

Directions: If you want to make from scratch, dip the Cod filets into Flour, then put into bowl with pancake mix (made with Beer instead of water). With tongs, carefully fry till golden brown, drain on paper towels. Mix Sauce ingredients by hand or puree in food processor. In a large frying pan with just a dab of oil, heat up tortilla’s till softened, turning them over. Top with a bit of Sauce and a small amount of shredded Cabbage or Lettuce, then top with Fish.
