Really nice when it's a mixed dinner with scallops and shrimp.

I will eat fried fish, but it is probably my last choice on how I want fish prepared. I much prefer baked or broiled, with a light dusting of seasoning (lemon and pepper or dill being my favorite).

Fried fish just really seems to cover up the taste of the fish, IMO.

I do eat fried fish. However, I much prefer it baked or otherwise cooked. But some things, fried is fine. I'm just not fond of greasy foods in general.

I agree. And not because I care about the calories or if it's healthy, etc. I just really don't like eating my fish through a bunch of greasy bread crumbs. I will eat it, but I prefer to just taste the fish.

Grilled is my fav.

What is it about "whole gut" that you like? Is this with the "corn meal" feed/sand purge treatment or fresh from the sea? I am curious /want to learn - I LOVE seafood.

I would like to try interesting layered structure of skate & chips again as well as "cod egg". (a deep fried "hockey puck" of fish roe.)

I will fry fish but that is a little different than deep-fried which I have not had in ages. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed deep-fried fish but I prefer a light fry, sauteed, poached, baked or grilled over a deep-fry.

Ironically for dinner tonight, I will serve cod sauteed in butter with capers. I can't wait for dinner.

Clams, walleye ... now I'm hungry!

If your fried fish is greasy, you ain't doing it right.

Like I said, I don't like fried foods. I've can't recall ever having fried any fish in my long life. I've eaten a lot of fried fish & seafood prepared by others. It's almost always too greasy. For me. For my tastes.
