Well, well, well. Ice off the lakes and a hint of spring in the air. It's a pretty nice Friday here in the Northwoods. And making it even nicer is that it is FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!!!
Today we have a recipe that came in from Kelly and Kelley Westphall. Yes a husband and wife with one letter separating their names, Very Cool. Kelly say's that this recipe is one his grandma used when she cooked up the daily catch. Grandma was a minimalist because she grew up in the depression and the recipe shows; it's simple but tasty. So today we dine on Kelly's Grandma's Fish.
1 pound perch or bluegill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup flour
Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper.
Combine egg and water in shallow bowl until well mixed.
With the flour on a plate, dip both sides of fish pieces into egg, then coat completely with flour.
Heat oil and fry fish turning once. Cook until fish flakes easily with fork and is brown on both sides.
Let that fish flavor come through. PERFECT! Thanks Kelly and your grandma. Your fish fry is on the way.
