Pickerel – 2 Fillets at 8 – 10oz each

Pickerel

Pickerel is a  freshwater fish that is a member of the pike family and is enjoyed as being a leaner fillet than many other fish types.  When cooked, pickerel is very white and flaky with a mild flavour, not a strong “fishy” taste.

A source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are healthy fats, pickerel are native to Eastern North America, and have been a big part of fishing “shore lunches” for generations.

 

Cooking Tip – Due to its mild flavour, pickerel is best when prepared simply – sprinkle with lemon pepper and pan fry in a bit of butter.
