Pan Fried Lake Perch

Monahan's Seafood Market | Fresh Whole Fish, Fillets, Shellfish, Recipes, Catering & Lunch Counter-Ann Arbor, Michigan

If you happen to be unlucky enough to have never experienced the joy of catching a perch, come on by the market for free fishing advice—there are thousands of perch within 20 miles of Ann Arbor! Or just pick some out of our case for dinner.

Serves 2

1 1/2 C Drake’s Batter Mix
pinch of salt
1 egg
1 C half & half
1/2 C canola or peanut oil (or clarified butter)
1 1/2 lbs. of fresh lake perch fillets

Mix Drake’s and salt together and set aside. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the half & half.

Heat the oil or clarified butter in a large sauté pan. Dip the perch in the egg wash first, then dredge through the Drake’s and carefully place the fillets into the hot pan to brown on each side (this should only take a couple of minutes). Remove from the pan and drain on a paper bag or paper towel. Serve immediately with a wedge of lemon, maybe a little tartar (available at Monahan’s) or even a lemon-caper-butter.
