Campbell’s Resort Shows Great Support For Get Fit Lake Chelan.
By Tony Rose
Get Fit Lake Chelan participants were treated to a great Cooking demonstration on Thursday night at Campbell’s Resort by Head Chef Troy Nesvacil.
In this cooking class, Chef Troy Nesvacil demonstrated how to deconstruct a whole King Salmon into 4 oz. portions and showcasing the best that fresh seafood has to offer. Chef Troy taught proper butchering techniques, how to prepare Troy’s Special Seasoning (low sodium), and a simple, garden fresh, organic salad to pair with the grilled salmon. We were shown how to use the entire fish, proper protein portioning and the use of local, organic produce to enhance any plate.
He shared with us some of his life experiences and provided us with the recipes for his Lemon-Caper Vinaigrette dressing, and a great and simple rub for salmon.
This was a great class as we were given many ideas to take home with us and put to the test. Chef Troy was spot on with giving us the recipes that could easily be implemented at home. Get Fit Lake Chelan Thanks Troy and Campbell’s Resort for Support this great community program.
