    my mom and grandma used to fry the fish at my uncle raymond's tavern on friday nights. by 9 o'clock the place'd be full of drunken miners beating on each other, and i'd have to go home early.

    Once upon a time it was Whitefish.

    Or other Lake species that are too few or too polluted to be available in commercial quantities anymore.

    One little reason it was easier to get on a plane to New Orleans (where speckled trout jumped into your boat).

    MMMM, that was great. I opted for St Pete's, it's easier to get to, as far as an in/out.

    I don't know how they do it in your neck of the woods, but here, these fundraiser fish frys for the schools seat everyone family-style, 8 or 10 or so to a table, so you're sitting with and dining with complete strangers.You don't stay strangers long, though.

    You do have the option of picking up a carryout, but where's the fun in that?

    Your making me miss Wisconsin. Fish fry down here means catfish only. No problem with that. Just means I have fill up the freezer when I go to the UP in June.

    We still have fish on Fridays as a hangover from a Catholic upbringing. Last night was salmon rissoles (tinned pink Canadian salmon, mashed spuds, fried onion, chopped coriander and seasoning) rolled in breadcrumbs and shallow fried until golden. Served with an Asian salad of julienned carrots with fresh chopped coriander and mint pickled in a dressing of fresh lime juice with sugar ginger garlic chilli and fish sauce. Topped with crushed peanuts. Yum!

    I "suffer" from that upbringing too.

    I might just have to try those salmon rissoles; they sound really good with that salad. We usually mash the tinned stuff with malt vinegar and ground black pepper and serve with lettuce, carrots, radishes, etc. English-style salad, I guess.

    I prefer an Alsatian Gewurztraminer with sushi. But still, it doesn't count. Fish fry and beer is its own thing.

    interesting... we can't have had many catholics in my family?...
    the "fish on friday" thing was never a tradition around our mob....

    although I had heard of the "fish on friday" thing from other people... tv shows,etc..

    fish and chips was eaten more often on a Sunday night on the way home from an day outing to grandmas up the coast....... to spare mum from kitchen duties, I guess...;)

    We lived in the inner city/burbs... where are you going to get a fish?... Some nights dad would bring home some of that yellow smoked cod to cook up with white sauce... we loved that..

    Dad?.. where did you catch the fish?.... why son, I caught it in the drain on the way home from work...

    Wooooo!..AWESOME!!!... my Dad was a great hunter... that was fish day... when he caught one, cleaned it and wrapped it up in paper and brought it home after getting off the bus from work in the city.....

    respect...:)

    Still is where I come from (Lake Superior)
    We had fish last night at our local St. William church- it was probably Haddock as well though- it was quite good with the home-made sides and desserts all part of the meal.

    Crispy cod, hot fries and three or four brandy old fashioned sweets......I grew up watching my parents make this "sacrifice" of no meat on Fridays during Lent.

    Extra tarter......mmmmmmmmm.

    I always seem to have to work Friday nights, hence I miss out on our great tradition. I will always remember as a bit younger man the VFW walleye feeds with my buds (and my friends, too)! in Beaver Dam.

    Where I grew up in Liverpool, just about every street corner that didn't have a pub on it, had a chippie on it.

    Especially as both my parents worked, I think I ate fish & chips at least two or three times a week Lent or not.

    I've spent a LOT of time in Wisconsin and really miss a good Great Lakes Whitefish dinner. Broiled with melted butter and slivered almonds. I used to buy it fresh at a fish market either in Kewaunee or Manitowoc and make it that night when I got back home to Illinois.

    Religion and fish. Jesus fishstick.
