How's that for a run-on sentence?
So up this week is... nobody. It's a bye week. For all I know my Browns are playing each other on Xbox.

So what do the people of Cleveland eat along with every other city, town, burg and lonely diner located along the shores of Lake Erie? Besides that? Fish Fry!
Any fish fry restaurant worth it's weight in fish scales along Lake Erie serves one of two fish, Lake Erie Perch or its bigger cousin the Yellow Pike. Also known as Walleye because the eyes turn white and glass over after being pulled from the water. And when a joint advertises a fish fry featuring Walleye, the fish come big, crowding the edge of the plate.
'nuff said. Fried Walleye, Muenster cheese macaroni and creamy cole slaw.
Mmmm, walleye...swoon...

Looks great, Pac!

Looks yummy! It's rockfish season here now, which would make a good stand-in for walleye.

Pac, I love Walleye, too, and I have actually caught a few in my younger days. I have never cooked it, and the restaurant where I used to order it changed the way they cook it so i don't order it anymore. Yours looks delicious!

Thanks, Carol
That's a shame about the restaurant. It's pretty hard to screw up a fried fish.

They don't fry it, they bake it in butter. It used to be dark, and most of the butter around it was cooked away. It appeared that they put it under the broiler. It was to die for. Now, it's not cooked as dark and you can still see the melted butter around it. To me, it doesn't taste done. Twice I have told them I want it well done...the second time saying very, very well done. It's no longer done the way I like it. Occasionally I see the owners, the husband does a lot of the cooking. One of these days I'm going to ask him what I can say to get it cooked the way it used to be. I'm thinking that some people may have complained that it was burnt and they changed the way they cook it, but that was the way I liked it.

Glad I found this thread.

I guess I should be making crab croquettes tonight. That is the only food I remember eating in Tampa.
