Moira’s Pan Fried Pickerel

Everyone knows how dee-lish-oussss a nice bit of Pickerel can be. Here’s a super recipe for you to try once you’ve brought home the big one! Just click on the pic for the recipe!

Place flour in shallow bowl; in separate shallow bowl, whisk together milk and egg. In another shallow bowl, place cracker crumbs. Using sharp knife, cut fillets diagonally into 2-inch wide pieces. In deep frying pan, heat oil to 375F 190C. Meanwhile, dip fish, 1 slice at a time, into flour, shaking off excess, then into milk mixture, then into cracker crumbs, pressing on both sides to coat thoroughly. Fry a few pieces of fish at a time for 3-4 minutes or until golden and fish rises to top of fryer. Serve with a slice of lemon and some french fries from the local chip wagon! Yummm!
