Have you ever been to upper Wisc. And enjoyed the famous Door County Fish Boil ?
North woods dining at it's best!
Well this is a stove top, one pot, version, you can do at home.
Naturally it is hard to duplicate a real Wisc. Fish Boil.You would have to be there. Outdoors, at sunset, smelling the tall pines.etc.
But when you live close to 2000 miles away.This is a treat.
