Fishing in the lake ~ fresh caught bluegill ~ fried for dinner

Charles loves to fish.  I haven’t the patience for it although I do enjoy eating some fresh fried fish from time to time.

He’s spent the past week drooling over fishing kayaks, seems like an expensive dinner if you factor in the price of a kayak …. I wonder how much lobster I could buy for a few hundred dollars … but I suppose there is no sport in that.

I will spare you the gruesome details of cleaning fish and just share a few picture.

I fried our fish.  Use your favorite breading or make your own.

Fish flour

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp garlic
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix above ingredients for fish flour.  I sprinkled the fish with a bit of extra salt and pepper.

In hot skillet add about a 1/2 inch or so of oil.  Dip fish in the flour mixture; you can either dry dip the fish or use an egg or milk wash for a thicker coating.  Don’t pack breading into inner cavity; a little falling in won’t hurt.  Fry in hot oil for about 3 minutes per side.  Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper if desired.  Carefully remove bones watching for little ones along the way.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
