If you live anywhere in Norfolk County it’s likely you know what Celery Bread is. There’s no celery in this bread. Thankfully. It’s a buttered cube of bread sprinkled with celery seed and then grilled or broiled. The recipe originated at the Erie Beach Hotel in Port Dover and is a favourite with locals. It’s a must if you’re having a fish fry.
You might be thinking, “What the hell is Crappie?” It’s a fish from the sunfish family found in our waters here at Lake Erie. Right now there are plenty around in the channels. That means you can stand on your dock and catch fish. And it doesn’t taste crappy at all! In fact, it’s a very mild white fish, delicate and delicious.
