There might be other ways and with differant fish, tried it with bass and trout, but yellow perch works best for me.
Fillet and skin perch and cut into shrimp size chunks.
Boil pot of water, I add spices such as OLD BAY crab spice to the boiling water.
Using a metal basket or strainer, put fish into boiling water.
Shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes, The fish pieces will turn white and curl up.
Remove basket from boiling water and run under ICE COLD water.
This gives it a shrimp like look and feel.
Now whip up some cocktail sauce with extra horseradish and open a bottle of adult beverage and enjoy.

Yellow perch fried in bacon grease and spring caught walleye. Fresh caught , I mean one hour ago, salmon on the grill with just a couple of wood chips to make it taste like a wood fire.

Down here in the Southern fresh water I rank em' like this;

1. Big hybred blue gill
2. Crappie
3. Channel cats

If you get into the saltwater I like flounder, red fish, and speckled trout.

No brainer: lake/yellow perch, spring, summer fall or winter. Hands down the #1 eating freshwater fish. Fried, deep fat fried, sauteed in butter, baked, or broiled. My favorite way is floured fried in bacon grease served with sunny side up eggs and hashbrowns at the cabin. Or beer battered and served up with steak fries and homemade coleslaw.

in second place Northerns, 3rd real bluegills not the sunfish people call bluegills. a tie with rockbass.

The best eating in fresh water would be to sit in your bathtub with a "T" bone steak cooked on a Cabela's Smoker Grill!

CK,
Fine mess of suckers! Hey, that one on the lower right doesn't seem to be the same... smile

CK, How do you catch them, they are usually a by product in my net. I have only caught one and I foul hooked it in the tail with a grub while smallmouth fishing.

The one on the lower right was one of Carson's (6 yrs old), Danielle killed her fare share during the night. These were gigged. I have tight lined for them during the spring and summer also. I love them during the winter.
