We can enjoy pike in stewed, fried and grilled form. There is no speculation that it would be enough for an excellent fish broth. It’s even up to you how you portion it. It doesn’t even have to be portioned, but on the contrary, it can be baked or grilled as a whole. You just need to gut it, then you can stuff the inside as you like.

The easiest way is baking in butter, to which we add cumin, salt and pepper. It also excels with root vegetables or a cream sauce.

As a side dish, you can choose potatoes in many ways , but it would also go well with a fresh homemade baguette .
