You can’t go wrong with classic pan fried fish after a long day on the water. It’s quick and easy and any type of freshwater fish will do.  This dish is best complimented by some wholesome grilled or steamed veggies and a rice of your choosing (Jasmine or Basmati with some of that residue butter from frying…. mmmmm)


  • 1/4 cup butter (if you are using a big frypan)
  • 2 fresh dill sprigs chopped
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 tsp lemon juice


  1. Heat butter in large pan until sizzling.
  2. Add fillets of your choice of freshwater fish (Pickerel, Pike, Bass etc...)
  3. Coat with the chopped dill, salt & pepper on both sides.
  4. Cook until crispy (7-10 minutes each side)
  5. Drizzle lemon juice once fried (not necessary but yummy) and serve!
