I went to lake erie and caught our limit of lake perch. In search of a tasty way to prepare them I discovered this recipe. These were awesome.. very easy to prepare..... my wife loves lake perch and orders lake perch frequently in many restaurants. This dish rivals any she has had. Will make again and again.
I found using 1 cup or less of flour sufficent, as I had more ingredients left over after making six large perch filets. Taste was good and although, no cooking time was indicated. I use the 10 minute per inch think rule, per side.
Easy and tasty fish recipe. Maybe it was the size of my fillets, but I could've gotten away with alot less milk and flour mix. 1/2 cup of milk and 1 cup of flour would've been good. I cut back on the amount of paprika and added a lilttle seasoning salt.
