To submit a Perch recipe .

Batter Fried Panfish

1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup water
1 egg white
Approximately 1 pound panfish fillets
1 lemon
Oil for deep frying

Combine the flour, cornstarch, pepper and salt and sift together onto a plate or piece of waxed paper. Beat the egg yolk and water to a smooth cream then incorporate the flour mixture a few tablespoons at a time. Just before using the batter, beat the egg white until stiff enough to stand in peaks when lifted on the beater. Scoop the egg white into the batter and fold it gently with a spoon or spatula. Heat the oil in a deep heavy pan. Pat the fish fillets dry with paper towel. Pick up fillets with tongs and dip into batter and carefully drop into the hot oil. Deep fry for four to five minutes, turn them as they brown. This will require about three minutes. After they brown, transfer the fillets to paper towel or a brown paper bag to drain excess oil. Arrange fillets on warm platter and serve at once accompanied with wedges of lemon.


15 to 20 bream (Perch)
Tabasco pepper sauce
1 egg
Seasoned flour (Creole seasonings and salt and pepper to taste)

Catch 15 or 20 bream. Filet with a very sharp knife. Clean them thoroughly and drop in a plastic bowl of milk flavored with pepper sauce, mustard and salt. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight (make certain the fish is totally covered with liquid). Remove and drop in a mixture of beaten egg and a small amount of the marinade mixture. Roll in seasoned flour

Fry quickly in a hot skillet with a little oil and butter. Drain and serve immediately with fresh vegetables and sliced homegrown tomatoes.

Broiled Panfish

Lay a layer of fillets in a broiling pan.
Sprinkle with a little white wine.
Dot with a little butter.

Broil a couple minutes-until flesh is white. This is very fast-depending on fillet size. Turn and briefly broil other side. Total cooking time usually less than 5 minutes. Broiling is easy and the fish are delicious!
