North Meets South: Pike Creole

0.0 from 0 votes

This recipe pairs a traditional Southern dish with the great flavor of Northern Pike to get a delicious mix. The Pike was caught in North Dakota on a tip from a local fisherman. The preparation time and cooking time is a little longer on this dish but it is worth the invested time. This dish will feed about 4-5 people and is great on a chilly night next to the fire.
