Filets de perche

Perch fillets

This highly sought after freshwater fish inhabits our Swiss lakes. The Vaudois restaurants have their very special recipes to prepare these fine fillets to be enjoyed on a terrace with a view of the lake and accompanied by a glass of Chasselas, the most representative grape variety of the canton of Vaud.

The perch is a small fish, which is recognizable by its silver scales and striped body. It is very much sought after for its delicately flavoured fillets. They are served by the dozen, cooked in butter “à la meunière”, fried in a batter or accompanied by a light sauce.
Perch can be found in most Swiss lakes, but it is a dish that is really symbolic of the canton of Vaud. Its small fillets cannot be dissociated from the terraces with a view of Lake Geneva, Neuchâtel or Morat. Whether gourmets prefer them with chips, salad or rice, they all agree that the wine that suits perch fillets best is Chasselas, of course!
