Fried Perch in Butter
Today Mika is planning to fry up some small Perch for a bankside lunch. The most effective way of catching them is via traps and a longline net, so the rods are left at home this time. Mika checks his first trap which has around 10 small fish before heading out onto the lake and seeting hs net in some deep water. He then heads to shore and after cleaning his catch, he fries the Perch in some butter and bay leaves. Forgetting his cutlery, Mika decides to find a suitable dead stick in the forest and whittles a pair of chopsticks to eat his perch lunch. He also toasts some bread to dip and enjoys an al fresco perch lunch.
