Just finished up an ice fishing camp weekend with some buddies. Slayed the pike. Decided to do a wild game “surf and turf” with pike and venison and the results were great. Pike chowder and sous vide venison with cowboy butter. My wife had also baked homemade sourdough bread the day before.

Followed a generic fish chowder recipe for the pike. Potatoes, onions, bacon, fish, water and heavy cream, and green onion. I baked the pike separately so that I could pull Y bones before adding to the chowder. Seasoned to taste.

I’ve been into sous vide for venison lately because of the precision cooking without having to worry about moisture loss. Cooked for about 3 hours at 134 degrees. Removed and seared to finish. Thin sliced and topped with “cowboy butter” aka butter, salt, garlic, thyme and rosemary.

Both look delicious! 👍
We also have a version of this, my buddies GF makes a fish chowder where we use walleye cheeks only.
On the Excalibur Crossbow forum there is a guy who posts pictures of wild game that he prepares, the guy must be a gourmet chef judging by the pics., mother nature provides us with some darn good eating!
