From Pond to Plate: Southern Fried Fish & Hushpuppies

DSC4414-1024x683.jpg

There's nothing quite more southern or summer than a day spent on the banks of a farm pond, catching a mess (in our case - a LARGE mess) of fish, then taking it home to clean, fry and eat alongside southern fried hushpuppies and homemade slaw. If a day gets much better than this one, I'm not sure what it would be. :) Watch below to see our girl slay the day and my attempt to slay in the kitchen what was un-filleted. From pond to plate, we caught some great memories and a really good meal.
