Recipe by Allyoop

A recipe from an old edition of Chatelaine Cookbook. It is a very tasty fish dish. Pickerel is my favourite lake fish.

Pickerel is our all time favourite. Living in Coboconk, Ontario we use to go fishing on Balsam Lake, bring our catch home and cook them right away. Great memories. This is a wonderful receipe. I did coat it in egg and milk and then Panko crumbs which I love using. I made it last night and the Husband did nothing but rave.
