Perch Sandwich

Eat Wisconsin Fish / Perch Sandwich



2 lbs. mild and flaky fish fillets (fresh or frozen). Whitefish or perch would work well.
½ tsp. salt, or to taste
½ tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. liquid hot pepper sauce, or to taste
2 tsp. olive oil



Thaw fish if frozen. Cut into serving sized portions (about 6) and pat dry. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Combine dry ingredients and coat the fillets generously. Place fillets in skillet. Cook over medium heat; about 4-5 minutes each side, or until fish flakes when forked.
