Trout with crawfish

In the mean time you can buy already gutted crawfish in a seafood shop, so that you do not have to cook the crawfish by yourself.

Forr 4 persons:

1 Trout weighing 1,5 kg
400 g Crawfish meat
2 Onions
Salt, pepper from the mill
Clarified butter, oil

Pinch off the gill arches of the trout on both sides and gut the fish with the hook of a ladle through the gill. Then wash the trout thoroughly.

Chop the onions and fry them until they become lucent together with the clarified butter in a frypan. Let the crawfish meat drip off, pat it dry and add it to the onions. Sprinkle it with parsley, pepper and mix everything. Fill the trout with the stuffing and salt it from both sides.

Use a double layer of aluminum foil and oil it with clarified butter and oil. Then wrap the fish. Broil it on the grill rid over the open fire 10 minutes from each side. Keep the remaining crawfish meat warm and serve it together with the fish. A Pinot Blanc Kabinett goes perfectly with this dish.

Grilled spare ribs

With a young wild boar of 50-60 kg we recommend to prepare the ribs with the same marinade in a Dutch Oven. With heavier wild boars it is better to gut the ribs and use the meat as rolled roast.

For 3 to 4 persons:

Ribs from one side of the wild boar with 30-40 kg
2 Onions
1 Red pepper
400 g Strained tomatoes
3 tb Vinegar
2 tb Honey
1 tb Hot mustard
3 tb Oil
1/2 cup Bouillon
1/2 bunch bunch Oregano or marjoram
salt, cayenne pepper

Remove spare fat and fix the ribs on spits. Salt from both sides.

Chop the onions in small pieces and fry them in a pot until they become lucent. Chop the red pepper into cubes and add vinegar, honey and mustard. Mix everything thoroughly and deglaze it with the bouillon. Add oregano and let it reduce slightly. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. The marinade should be quite hot.

Start a fire at a wind-protected place. Oil the ribs with the marinade and let them roast from both sides for 1,5 hours. The spit should not be close to the fire than 30 cm. Add marinade from time to time, cut the ribs into pairs and serve them on a tray, then eat it with your hands. A good Silvaner is perfectly suitable with this dish.

1 1/2 tb Milled caraway
1 bunch bunch fresh marjoram (or 2 ts dried)

Peel the potatoes, slice them and put them in a bowl of water, so that they do not change color. Chop the onions into chunky pieces, slice the ham and fry everything with the clarified oil in a roasting tin until the onions become lucent.
