Battered Fish Recipe

Summer 2010 – My handsome daddy and his fish

I grew up in Sioux Lookout, Ontario – known for it’s fishing and hunting. It’s an amazingly beautiful area and I am blessed to have an Aunt and Uncle who still live there on a beautiful house by the lake. We’ve been up visiting a few times since moving to Southern Ontario. Southern Ontario has it’s perks but I sure do miss Northern Ontario a whole lot!

This picture was taken in the summer of 2010 when my parents went up for a visit. That’s a pickerel (or walleye) and trust me,  there are few things better than fresh pickerel fried up Aunty-style! {Have you tried my Aunty Pat’s Scalloped Potatoes yet?!?}

Growing up we ate fish a LOT. If we weren’t eating fish then there was a good chance we were eating partridge or moose. I miss northern pickerel a lot and never realized how good we had it. The fish from this area can’t compare!

We did buy some fresh fish the other day and my husband battered it up. The batter wasn’t too heavy and it was very crisp; a very traditional batter like you’d find at a genuine fish and chip shop. The battered fish recipe with photos is here. I highly recommend you check out the link!

I’m thankful for good memories of delicious fish, I just wish I could eat them Smile
