Perch carries a lot of emotional weight for us. It can speak of a sandy summer cottage in upper Michigan or a rustic Wisconsin cabin on a cold October evening. Like buttered corn-on-the-cob, yellow perch is the perfect summer comfort food. It is easy-to-prepare. Its size makes it perfect for pan-frying but it also tastes great roasted, grilled, or baked. This particular batch is wild-caught from Lake Erie Canada-side where perch are again abundant (BTW, happy 150th, Canada).
The fish is flaky with firm flesh and mild flavor. A Seafood Watch "Best Choice.” Low mercury level. Kosher.
1 lb. for $20.00 (each fillet fish is 2-to-4 oz)
