A tasty class project

Marie Zhuikov and Sharon Moen, hosts of “The Fish Dish,” met Chef Karalyn Littlefield while recording an episode of the Wisconsin Sea Grant podcast. Their conversations with Littlefield, an instructor of food science at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls, led to a class project and competition focused on Wisconsin fish.

In March, Littlefield’s students were divided into teams and tasked with creating one of five recipes found on the Eat Wisconsin Fish website, plus the Fisherman’s Brunch recipe. The students used walleye and perch caught and donated by the father of one of the students. UW–River Falls media specialist, Pat Deninger, was on hand to photograph the results.
