    Stacky5's Note:

    This is how my ex-DH cooks fish that he and my kids catch right here in 14-Mile Creek and Indian Creek in Southern Indiana...I hate to sound like such a simpleton, but this is the real, simple, "Mountain-Man" thing, a down-to-earth fresh fish recipe! NEVER any leftovers, although the kids get pretty grossed out watching ex-DH clean and fillet the fish!!! :) P.S. ex DH says you "Gotta have a 10" iron skillet for this one." VISUAL WARNING: The pictures were taken the last time ex-DH cooked this, and he is a VERY MESSY cook! LOL!

      I love the simplicity of this recipe, and when we get fresh fish this is the first recipe I think about. So good! We have made it several times now and its always a winner for us!

      Very simple dish that tastes great every time I make it, and I have made it 3 times now! I used bass, white perch and haddock. Doesn't get simpler or better than this! When I get done frying my fish I just squeeze lots of lemon on top and serve up with mashed potatoes and stewed tomatoes. Becky

      YES MA'AM! Oh boy, we swam in fish heaven tonight. I substituted sole for the bass since I had it on hand, but otherwise followed your recipe and lemme tell you, sister... you're lucky I learned how to make this or I'd be knocking on your door demanding a bite of whatever's in that cast iron skillet picture on Zaar! :o) Thanks a bunch, Stacky!
