Wild Caught Pickerel
Did you know? Pickerel, sometimes known as Walleye, is both Ocean Wise and MSC approved for being a sustainable and responsibly caught fish. Thanks to Caudle's Catch, a family-operated Ontario company, you can easily get your hands on some delicious wild-caught pickerel. Pickerel is known for its mild, sweet flavour and firm texture. So if you're just starting to dip your toes into the world of seafood, this is a great place to start.*This lake fish may contain small bones.
COOKING TIP: These thin fillets of wild-caught pickerel work best baked with some lemon, garlic, and herbs or lightly breaded and pan-fried. As they cook, the fillets will turn more opaque and off-white. Since the flavours of this fish are quite delicate, you'll want to choose sides that won't overpower it. Roasted cauliflower, asparagus, or baby potatoes are all good options. *Due to the nature of seafood, many products cannot be vacuum-sealed.
