Seafood sausage


Seafood sausage is a great, underrated way to take less than thrilling seafood, like some sleepy sole, and previously frozen salmon, and make something that seems far more special. The flavor is lovely, & the texture is similar to lớn a boudin blanc, or trắng hot dog, if you prefer. You can brown and serve these right after they"re done boiling, but I like to make them ahead of time.

Chef"s Notes:

You can substitute any white fish for the sole. Makes sure your fish is well chilled; cold meat makes better sausage.
