DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the potatoes well and cut a thin slice off each end (this allows for better flavor penetration).
  • Set them aside.
  • Pour the water into a 5-gallon pot and bring it to a rolling boil.
  • Keep it boiling as much as possible during the cooking procedure.
  • Add 1 cup of the salt and the potatoes to the pot.
  • Cook until the poatoes are nearly done (test with a fork), 20 minutes.
  • Add the remaining 1 cup salt and the whitefish.
  • Cook until the fish is still firm but beginning to pull away from the bone when lifted with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • While the fish is cooking, skim the oil off the surface of the water with a spoon.
  • Lift the cooked potatoes and fish from the water and drain well.
  • Arrange the fish and potatoes on a large platter and sprinkle with the parsley.
  • Serve immediately with the Tartar sauce, melted butter for dipping or spooning over, and the lemons alongside.
  • NOTE: The amount of salt is based on the amount of water.
  • If you're increasing the amount of water, add 1 cup of salt for each additional gallon of water.
