SACRAMENTO, Calif. (Ammoland.Com) – This week on The Sporting Chef, Scott Leysath participates in an Asado Feast, a traditional Argentinian fest, complete with a doe on a spit. Plus, Chef Leysath’s ‘Sporting Friends’ are joining in to showcase their tried-and-true recipes for anything with fur or fins. The Sporting Chef airs exclusively on Sportsman Channel Sunday, May 31 at 12:30 p.m. ET.
Chef Leysath is back to his old stomping grounds of Virginia to attend an annual Asado Feast, which is a celebration of food, friends and family eating barbecued foods basted in a traditional chimichurri sauce from South America.
Also in this week’s show, a local angler shows how to take an ugly fish – the Oyster Toad Fish – and turn it into something delicious. “As ugly as they are, oyster toads are great to eat. They are a neutral, light, flaky fish that doesn’t taste like it looks,” said Leysath. Plus, eating these oyster-eating fiends will help protect Virginia’s oyster populations.
Later in the show, Leysath attends a National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF) Wheelin’ Sportsmen event. Wheelin’ Sportsmen is one of the outreach programs under NWTF and Virginia has one of the most active chapters with 35 events per year. Learn more at http://www.vanwtf.com/wheelin.aspx
