What does everyone think about starting a POI for fish fries? I know people back home that will drive an hour or more for a good one.
Do you mean fried fish? I live up in the Boston area and we have plenty of fried fish restaurants. I have never heard of a fish fry, but it sounds good.
"Fish Fry" might make more sense to people.
Or, "Friday Fish Fry"!!
Here are some in Wisconisn:
I should add that I assumed this was a great lakes thing.
Kind of like "Meat Raffles"!!!!
Oh yes, Meat Raffles!
Or maybe Fish & Chips?
It is a Great Lakes thing. Kind of of like a crawdadheadsuckfest down south.
Exactly. In WI, I don't think a restaurant can be open on a Friday without a Fish Fry special. and for the record, craw dads are way too much work.
In New England (as mentioned earlier)our Friday food special is "Fish and Chips", usually Cod or Haddock.
I've never been to a Fish Fry, or a crawdad fest. Not sure I want to eat a food that's nickname is "mud bug", but I'll try anything once.
You just ain't lived till you been out on Lake Erie or one of the others, caught the limit and then fired up the turkey pot and deep fried the days catch of yellow Perch or Walleye. Now that's a Fish Fry!
Nothing like catching fish for the sport then eating them, beats the hell out out of commercial store bought stuff. Cod and Haddock are ok (a little on the bland side), if you have to depend on someone else getting them for you and then freezing them. don't get me wrong I also eat Frozen Fish in the Winter, that I caught in the spring, summer and fall.
Just another advantage of living on the Great Lakes, besides all the fresh water you could ever imagine.
a Lot of restaurants here have AYCE Fish fry's on Fridays unfortunately they serve Haddock and cod usually (because it's plentyful and comericaly netted. Any really great fish fry will have Walleye or Perch and not ocean Perch.
The Great Lakes make up a really larger Region if it's a regional thing. With Canadian and U.S. Boarders and thousand of miles.
Might want to try a Fish Boil such as they have all week long in Door County complete with fresh Cherry Pie with local cherries.
Exactly. In WI, I don't think a restaurant can be open on a Friday without a Fish Fry special.
...or a tavern. ...especially a tavern.
I don't think I ever eat at home when I'm back in WI on a friday. It's a sin I think to not go out for fish.
Something Fishy's going on around here.
Would love to be able to get out that way. You make it sound so inviting!
We've gone deep sea fishing in Maine and have done local lake fishing for perch, catfish, and trout. The fish that I do buy, is fresh from the docks in Boston and Gloucester. Can't say I've ever have had frozen fish. Haddock is mild, reminds me of pasta...it's all in how you prepare it.
I can't wait to start traveling to experience some of these things (like fishing on Lake Erie) myself.
You mustn't forget all the Pastie restaurants! We took a circle tour drive around Lake Michigan and along the southern shore of Superior last year and I was very surprised at the number of restaurants that advertised Pasties. I was thinking of a sort of regional version of Hooters, of course.
What's really amazing is that the Great Lakes contain about 90% of North America's fresh water, and almost a quarter of the fresh water in the whole world.
I think that you should know that the term is Pasty and not Pastie. A Pastie is a covering used by a female performer.
