Kokanee Fillets 8 ounces butter 4 tablespoons lemon pepper 1 teaspoon minced garlic Warm up the bbq grill to medium heat. Place the fish fillets on tin foil and fold up the edges so the butter and the juices will stay inside the aluminum foil. Sprinkle lemon pepper generously on both sides of the fish. Sprinkle garlic generously on both sides of the fish. Cut the butter into slices and place evenly on top of each fish fillet. Place on the aluminum foil holding the fish onto the grill and grill for 5 to 7 minutes, being careful to not overcook.

Panko Crusted Kokanee Fillets Recipe
6 Kokanee Fish Fillets 2 Cups of Flour 4 Eggs 1 Teaspoon Melted Butter Canola Oil Salt & Pepper Seasoning Mix 3 Tablespoons Lemon Pepper 1 ½ Teaspoons Sugar 2 Tablespoons Dried Dill 1 Teaspoon Dried Chives 1 Teaspoon Dried Parsley 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder 1 Teaspoon Cornstarch 3 Cups of Panko Bread Crumbs Lemon Juice Take the Kokanee and fillet them into nice fillets, remove the skin and remove the pin bones. Wash the fillets off with water and then pat them dry with a paper towel. Season the fillets with salt and pepper to give them some base flavor. Put the flour into one bowl, the eggs, and melted butter in another bowl. Beat the eggs and butter mixture together. In a large dish or mixing bowl combine Panko, seasonings mix, and cornstarch together until they are evenly mixed well. Dip the Kokanee fillets into the flour, and then into the egg mixture. Let the eggs run off the fillets and then place the fillets into the Panko mixture. Generously coat the fillets with the Panko and seasoning. Place onto a baking sheet. Baked Option: Bake the Kokanee fillets at 350F for 20 to 25 minutes for a healthier option. Fried Option: Heat a frying pan with canola oil high enough to cover the fillets. The oil temperature needs to get between 350 to 375F degrees or the fillets will come out greasy. The panko crust will burn if the oil is hotter than 375F. Fry each side of the fillets for about three minutes, or until the batter is golden brown and the fish meat starts to flake. Once the fillets are cooked, put them onto a plate with a paper towel and let them sit for a few minutes before serving. Drizzle fresh lemon juice over the fillets and serve with a side of tartar sauce, and enjoy!
