I dashed into the Cod Father's this afternoon after a sudden inspiration to see if they had any fresh pickerel in stock. Lucky me! They had some just in from Ontario. It's usually from Manitoba and though it's a treat when you haven't had any for a while, Manitoba pickerel just doesn't seem as good as the fish we caught in the lakes near Sioux Lookout Ontario where I grew up.
Tonight we'll be having a traditional Sioux inspired dinner with pan fried pickerel, wild rice that I know for sure comes from near Sioux because my dad sent it to me. Gayle McKenzie's cucumber salad will be one of the side dishes and I think I might dig into the frozen wild blueberries for dessert. I have no idea what I'll do with them, so feel free to share your suggestions.
