Here is an easy and delicious way to batter fish:

3. Fry to golden brown.
Walleye recipes are among the most popular. This game fish is possibly the best eating freshwater fish in North America.
Beyond the tasty Walleye, the Northern Pike is a fish that is often forgotten about when it comes to great meals. Often overlooked because of its reputation as a “bony” fish, once you learn how to fillet a northern and remove the Y bone, it is a very good eating fish.
- Try thawing frozen fish in milk. The milk draws out the frozen taste and provides a fresh-caught flavor.
- When freezing fresh fish in water, add a small amount of lemon juice to preserve the flavor.
- All of our cabins have a stove top percolator type coffee maker. To use a percolator coffee maker simply fill the coffee pot to desired level with water and put coffee grounds in the basket. Bring the water to a boil, place the stem and basket in the water and cover securely with the lid. Turn the burner to the very lowest setting and perk for 7 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for a couple of minutes for coffee to settle. Enjoy.
- Don’t forget those tasty wild blueberries. If you happen to be at the camps when they are ripe, add them to your pancakes for a special treat. Set aside a tablespoon of your dry batter and gently mix with the blueberries. Mix your batter as directed and then stir in the coated blueberries. This will help so you don’t get that purple batter.
