Order of the Hook Dinner Recipe

For this recipe you will need one salmon, trout, or Steelhead fillet, 1-2 tablespoons Dry Herb Rub, ¼ cup of melted butter and  6-10 of thawed out sheets of phyllo dough. 

First, remove the skin of the fish and discard skin. On a large baking sheet, lay out one sheet of phyllo dough. Using a brush spread a light layer of melted butter on thawed out phyllo dough. Repeat making six layers. The more layers, the thicker and flakier the “crust”. Place the fish on the phyllo dough and season with Dry Herb Rub or your favorite fish seasoning (If you don’t have a Herb Rub recipe there is one at the end of this blog we recommend). Wrap phyllo completely around the fish. Lightly cover the top of  phyllo dough with butter, salt and pepper to taste and bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until fish reaches 135-140 degrees. Let us know how your phyllo dough wrapped fish turns out. If you altered the recipe at all let us know so we can try it that way next time.

2 bay leaves, 2 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp.
thyme, ½ tsp. oregano, ½ tsp. onion
powder, ½ tsp. garlic powder, ½ tsp.
salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, ¼ tsp. rosemary.
Grind ingredients in a mortar and pestle,
or food processor

This is a break down of the Potentate’s Stan Garret’s monthly address in the Desert Dust.

  • The theme for 2012 is “Heritage and Pride”
  • El Korah is as much about camaraderie and philanthropy as it is Masonic Heritage.
  • Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization.
  • Nobles should be proud and share their heritage.
  • The Divan’s number one priority should be membership.
  • To share ideas about how to grow membership, contact Mike Yavno,  Membership Chair, at 619-212-5435 and or Stan Garrett 949-6430.
  • Lets experience how our heritage in the Masons, Enhances our Pride in the Shrine.

Past Potentate Ray Westmoreland was elected as President for the ensuing year. Voter turnout was light as David Nordling was elected as Vice President for the 5th or 6th time. Past Potentate Cal Ledbetter repeats as Secretary/Treasurer. The Camel Herder degree was offered the following week as new Noble Bruce Drewes and Recorder Bob Finney successfully completed this challenging feat. The Camels had a wonderful year parading, with many dignitaries making guest appearances on board. Past Potentate Jim Rees, Outer Guard and Clown Dave Thomas, Oriental Guide Cory Turner, 2012 Potentate Stan Garrett and Recorder Bob Finney all spent time in the saddle. The Camel received a First Place Award in the Western Days Parade in Twin Falls.
