cooking perch
« on: Feb 19, 2016, 07:56 PM »
Ok...my doctor said I should eat more fish.... I'm 70.
In the past I always cleaned my perch and gave them away. Now I need to eat some of them. I usually fillet my perch but my buddies deep fry them and not fillet them. Said you loose too much meat. Regardless, anyone want to share some recipes they use for perch...filleted or otherwise...???
hot oil...cornmeal, breadcrumbs, pan fried, beer batter, etc......?????
  :whistle:

Boy, do you have the wrong forum for this post.  Unless you have figured a way to cook perch using the heat from your ice auger.

But I will share a recipe.  Saute the fillets in a mix of olive oil and butter.  Put them aside.  Pour some dry vermouth in the pan and some garlic (I use a garlic press).  Evaporate half or more of the vermouth, then add a little lemon juice.  Turn the heat off and swirl in a couple pats of butter with some dried parsley.  Pour over the fillets and enjoy.  Perch piccata, my favorite.

I left out an important step.  Salt and pepper the fillets before sauteing!

I don't mind deep fried fish every now and then, but since I have NuWave oven, it's much easier then dealing with batter and oil.  I fillet and skin all my fish. I like using Italian bread crumbs, with some garlic powder and parmesan cheese.  I either soak my fillets in milk overnight, but sometimes I don't.  I generally dry the fillets on paper towels before I coat them with my mix.  Then I put them in the NuWave to cook them.  I usually put them on one side for several minutes, then flip them over and finish off for another minute or two.

I like to fry mine, egg wash them and then italian bread crumbs.  It's super simple but tastes great and my little ones will eat it which is a bonus.

Using oil makes to much a mess. I broil them. put a thawed out fillet on a pan sprayed with pam. Salt, Pepper, a little Old Bay seasoning. Broil on high for 4min. Open put parmesan cheese on put back broil anther 3min. pull out then put a little butter on them. Enjoy. 👻

cuz when yer 70, sometimes you forget were you're filing things, lol! No big deal, it'll get where it's supposed to be sooner or later. ;D


I was sittin on the couch trying to read a good book one evening while the Mrs was watching Martha Stewart. ( no, Really! she was watching and I was reading! )  Well, Martha was cooking a fish dish so I put the book down. First she dredged the fillets in flour. The flour makes the eggs stick to the fish better. Then she dips the fillet in egg and rolls it in panko. then she fried in hot oil for a couple minutes. Not too long but untill it flakes easy.

I tried it with some perch, bass, trout and even some pickerel. I used both panko or breadcrumbs but panko with seasoning is better. It's my go to and it's Martha approved, LOL!

In this part of the great lakes...

Cooking the best perch begins with the best way to clean them...

As far as perch and gills, we scale them, leaving the skin on.. Then fillet...

That's how all the best restaurants around here do their perch too..

The rest is up to you, me I like drakes beer batter, dusted with cornflakes crumbs... Deep fried in peanut oil...

Simple and good for you, drizzle olive oil on the fish and season with what you like

Get a stainless grill plate for your grill, mine is a weber paid like $30. Grill the fish until flaky. There is no batter, not much oil and no mess. We just cooked some fish tonight with deep fryer, I still like the grilling better, the taste is pure and better for you.

I just pan fry fillets either with a dash of oil or little butter with a sprinkle of nature seasoning , fry until golden brown , salt to taste
Occasionally I will bake them in condensed cream of mushroom soup, don't add water  , spred some of the soup on bottom of a glass pan place fillets on the soup then spred what's left Of the soup over fillets , 350 for approximately 30 min

When your doctor told you to eat more fish, I don't think he meant "deep fried" fish.  Best way I know how is to fillet them out, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Heat a skillet with olive oil, thinly slice 2 cloves of garlic, fry the garlic till golden brown and then put in the fish.  squeeze lemon on the finished product and enjoy.
I wish I knew how to do this!!

Pickling is another way to use up perch fillets. Or you can dice the fillets up and make a fish chowder.
