Something I did with White perch (Crappie) once was to "sacrifice" on filet to make a faux crab meat by gently poaching in a little lemon/Old Bay seasoning water...cool and flake...Then I made a stuffing using onions, celery, bell pepper, green onion, and parsley sauteed in butter...added toasted bread crumbs made in the Cuisinart, added the flaked faux crab meat, a few diced shrimp..salt, pepper etc. I put the stuffing between two other filets, sandwich style, and baked in the oven until done....Kinda a "stuffed flounder" idea if you will....With a little lemon butter drizzled on it was very tasty....

That sounds really great.

Im doing a simple marinade with
Salt
Pepper
Dijon Mustard
Fresh squeezed orange juice
Dried Lemon and Orange peel
Olive Oil.

Plan on broiling them and basting with the marinade.

The faux crabmeat/perch dish sounds amazing though and I'll keep it around for next time.

Don't marinate them for more than 20-30 minutes at the very most. Any longer than that & the acid in the citrus juice will chemically "cook" the fish, & then when it's cooked over heat it will turn to mush.

I thought the same thing Breezy. The only perch I've had is Lake Erie. Had family that lived up on the lake and would fry it in a beer batter.

Man that sounds good, got me droolin'. DW's cousin sends us a box of Omaha meats every year for Christmas, or at least the past 2-3 anyway. And they come with 2 stuffed soles similar to this, though not as extravagant, and it's good frozen! Let alone nice fresh stuff like that.
