I don't recall ever cooking Perch. I don't know what a Perch looks like. Wait; according to the Almighty Internet, it looks like this:
But what I got out of the fridge looked like this:
|These aren't the fillets I cooked; this is a stock photo.|
It wasn't bad, but I wanted more salt, pepper and garlic.
As I'd cooked up a pound of fish, I had a good bit left over today. What do you do with leftover fried fish?
How about an omelette?
So I took a couple of the fillets and broke them up, and put them into a frying pan with some melted butter and a little Olive Oil. (I add the oil both to keep the butter from burning, and to give a little different flavor.) Meanwhile I stirred up some eggs with some pepper, salt, garlic and parsley -- sometimes I add Tarragon to my omelettes, but not this time -- and then poured all that over the fish. I thought about cheese, but decided to omit it.
Spiffy in a jiffy!
So how was it?
It didn't turn out of the pan so well (that's why I didn't take a picture, sorry), but it tasted pretty good. I actually liked the Perch better this morning than last night. At any rate, I used some leftovers, which is always good.
Now I really must whip up a homily!
