Door County Fish Boil for Two

The traditional Door County Fish Boil is a tourist spectacle that turns out some mighty good eating. Many restaurants there have fish boils weekly and some every night. The cooking is done outside in a huge caldron. Water is brought to a boil. Then ingredients added one by one based on how long they take to cook. Traditionally, whitefish goes in last, the diesel fuel is tossed on the fire so it flames up and super-heats the kettle so it boils over. When it does, the food is done and the cauldron is hauled inside the restaurant to serve the guests. This recipe is for a downsized version that doesn’t have to be boiled over …. but you can if you want the true ambiance.
