White Perch Lunch

About 5 minutes after we caught the white perch in Center Harbor we were preparing the fillets.  Clay  inserted his new sharp knife into the skull of the fish to put it out of its misery quickly, then proceeded to fillet it on the grass.

Compared to other fish, the meat of a white perch has a more dramatic combination of red and white flesh.

A simple dusting of spices and then into the frying pan.
 The white perch tasted fine and had a delicate texture. We both agreed that it was one of the better ones on the quest.
