C's pan-fried bluegill

C started working on his fishing merit badge in colorado. he had a great time learning to fly fish, but the problem is, he didn't catch anything. so last week we went to a local park with a beautiful pond (sorry no pictures, i forgot the camera!) and he pulled in some bluegill. to earn his badge he had to catch, clean, cook and eat his fish, so although they were small, C brought them home. under the watchful eye of his dad, C cleaned the fish with only 1 minor cut to his finger (no stitches were necessary). he cooked up the fish devising the following recipe on his own. i was allowed to sample the fish and it was really delicious.
