Bacon Burbot Bites

  Most people disregard Burbot (i.e. Eelpout, Mariah, long. freshwater long, ling cod, the lawyer, poor mans lobster, etc.) for its table fare.  Burbot is a delicious fish and blackstraps can be cooked a variety of ways.  Check out our Bacon Burbot Bites.

Approximately 2 Burbot (4 backstraps)
1 lb bacon
1 cup ketchup
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Optional: A few drops of liquid smoke (we like hickory)

1)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2) Cut fish into cubes or the size you desire.
3) Wrap thawed bacon around fish pieces.  Tip: We cut bacon slices into 1/3 lengths.  Ensure you have wrapped the Burbot on all sides with your bacon; secure your bacon with a toothpick and place on cookie sheet or 9x13" pan.
4) In a saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar, liquid smoke, and Worcestershire sauce; heat just to boiling.  Pour over bites.
5) Bake in preheated oven until bacon is completely cooked(approximately 45-50 minutes).
