Step 1:

Rinse and pat House of Meats Wild Caught Lake Perch Fillets dry with a paper towel.


Step 2:

Mix flour and seasonings in a shallow plate, a pie plate works well. Season to taste.


Step 3:

In a second bowl, beat eggs with milk.


Step 4:

Add oil to a large frying pan, enough so that there is about a 1/2 inch or so in the bottom. Preheat oil over medium heat to 375 degrees. Heat oil until hot but not smoking.


Step 5:

Bread fish fillets by turning in the flour a couple of times. You could shake the fish with the flour mixture in a bag as well, then dredge through the egg and milk mixture and flour a second time.


Step 6:

Add fish to hot oil, until pan is full but not crowded. Make sure there is about 1/2 inch of space between the pieces of fish.


Step 7:

Fry until brown. You'll know because the edges of the fish will start to brown and curl. Turn when ready, it should only take a few minutes but will depend on the size of the filets.


Step 8:

Remove from pan when lightly browned, DO NOT OVERCOOK.

Place the fish on a cooling rack lined with paper towels. Don't put on a plate or your fish will get soggy. You can place this in a warm oven to keep the fish warm while you cook the next batch.


Step 9:

Serve with French Fries or Baked Red Skins and Orange Glazed Green Beans!
