Perch Eggs

Recommended Posts

So, After catching a mess of perch fat with eggs, I decided to try cooking them up. I had some intact egg sacs, that i left intact and fried, and some that were a little bit looser after filleting. I soaked them in an egg/milk wash, rolled them in bread crumbs, and made them into patties. Pan fried (I had bacon grease in the pan left over from breakfast) I had them with horseradish sauce and mustard. The intact egg sacs were a bit fishier tasting, but all were Delicious!

My step Dad used to have me keep them and fired them up first. I don't remeber them much other than they do taste like fish... He did a thin batter and fried. He loved them more than the fillets I think! I guess over the years I have thought of doing it again, but never seem to save the eggs... You do need to do them fresh.

Good luck!

My Wife eats fish eggs all the time, along with eyeballs and all of the other meat in the fish heads.

In fact, she's the best fish cleaner I have ever seen in 40+ years. I have never cleaned a fish since I met her. ...and this is from a guy who has cleaned fish all my life!

My Dad would mix the perch eggs with regular eggs and scramble the whole thing. I remember them as being pretty good. Anybody ever use white lard for frying fish? Stan C.

That is why shore lunch in Canada tastes so good! Lard... The secret ingredient! How can you go wrong cooking meat in meat!

Good luck!

Used to eat Sunfish egg sacs as a kid, we fried them right along side the fillets, breaded just the same way, etc. I remember them being tasty but I haven't tried it for over 25 years. Might have to try it again this spring.
