Striper Fishing

A very good friend of my husbands took him striper fishing Saturday night and they had a blast!
They brought home four beautiful stripers and memories they’ll have for years to come!
And we’ll have several fish dinners from the filets.
These fish were over 20 inches long and heavy. I froze eight bags of chunks this morning and put them in the freezer. We love them deep fried but plan to try some on the grill as soon as the weather warms.

Eddie fileted them on Sunday morning and I like to soak them in ice water for at least 48 hours to get rid of the blood. They were all snow white this morning when I sliced them into good cubes and froze them.

Does anyone out there have a favorite recipe for fish that you would like to share with me? When I’m ready to cook them I take them out of the freezer and soak them several hours in salted water. Then I get my deep fryer heating and make a smooth batter of seasoned flour, paprika, eggs, milk and old bay seasoning. I dip the cubes in a separate bowl of seasoned flour, then into the batter and then into the fryer until they’re golden brown. It’s some really good eating!!!

      The lemon is squeezed onto the cooked fish.
      I remembered the name of my other favourite sea fish – it is called FLATHEAD!
      You can google it for more information.
      Have a great Easter holiday.
      PS: The funeral is on Tuesday.
      On closer examination I thought it was a dog.

    I don’t have the patience for fishing but I do love fish to eat.
    Ocean fish I much prefer to the river fish, but I know that you don’t live close
    to the Atlantic Ocean so I guess Eddie packing up for a coastal fishing jaunt
    is pretty much out of the question.
    I don’t like battered fish, just plain pan fried or grilled on a BBQ and then it is essential
    that I have lemon – that is a MUST!
    Eddie looks pretty professional with his scaling and cutting up of the fish but what is that strange
    thing at his feet????
