North Cottage Country Exigencies with Fish

Catching an unexpected boatload of trout or walleye, and lacking the means to do them justice, here's a novel method...

Fillet your catch, removing the bones, skins, and, of course, fins...

Dip the fillets in egg batter, mixed with milk and stirred vigorously...leave to "soak" a few minutes...

Grab a full size foil bag of "Salt and Vinager" potato chips...pin hole the bag and expel the air...crush to meal-like consistency with a rolling pin, then batter the fillets thoroughly in this mix...

fry as per normal in (well, with no apologies, I use Lard!) until properly browned, and note how well any white fleshedfish turns out with this expedient to cornflakes, cornmeal, breadcrumbs or flour turns out!

High end "chips" work out better than the "cheapies", in my own opinion, but I'm "picky" about these things, and maybe you guys are not....for what that'sworth...

Well, I'm jealous here!!! I can't remember the last time I went fishing!!! Dadgummit, but city life has some severe drawbacks!

Lifter, I've never thought about potato chip crumbs. That's a really interesting idea!

That'd be right!

Any chance to plunge the (Trout) fishing knife into all of us suffering Summer

We have to wait another few months for them.

My auto-fishers are all broken as well! (Kids) We are only coupla hundred yards from our river and the kids are too busy working on cars & such. No time for fishing.

Curse the Cottage Country.

I miss fishing too. I usually get about 2 dozen bluegills and maybe a couple catfish, not worth scaling for a sammy. :x Fishing is terrible here!

Just wanted you to know, Lifter, that I followed this recommendation a few weeks back and all here were highly pleased with the outcome. Glad to have another tasty reason to serve fish to the carnivores I live with!

Lifter; You know I love fish, and fishing. how could I grow up here and not. HOwever, I have to take exception. I would use your recipe on any fish, and especially on perch, bass, or the sunfish family. But it is truly, and I mean truly sacriligeous to use anything but a light dusting of AP flour, and some salt on wild speckled, rainbow, or brown trout (no larger than 12 inches), you know, the fish with that orange meat that fries up so well in a couple inches of oil in a cast-iron pan, with a sprinkling of salt, and served only with fries, if with anything.

Oh for those past days of culinary rapture, sitting with my Dad, eating a mess of trout freshly caught that day from one of the Lake Superior streams.

They serve wild trout in Heaven. Did you know that. Otherwise, how could it be Heaven?

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Year 'round, Brooksy but the variety of fish is lacking. If I want to do any serious fishing I'll head up to a little place called Tubb's Lake in Michigan. The fishing is MUCH better there!
