Lake Perch Pancake Batter 1 Recipe

- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup pancake mix (dry)
- 1 egg
- 1 can 7-UP Soda (you may substitute a similar clear soda)
- canola oil for frying
Combine the pancake mix, egg, and 7-up in a small bowl, beat till well mixed. Refrigerate the batter for at least 30 minutes. Remove skin from the Lake Perch filets and wash with cold water. Dry the filets with paper towels. Put the flour in a plastic bag. Add the perch filets to the plastic bag and shake to coat the filets with flour. In a large frying pan, heat the canola oil, 1/4 inch deep, to about 375 degrees. Take the floured filets and dip one by one, into the batter to coat, and carefully place the filet into the hot oil. Fry filets till golden brown on both sides. Serves two.
