Now that lent has started, one of the biggest questions people have been asking on social media is "Who has the best fish fry?".  I asked around and checked out some local resources and found 9 places in the Rochester area that are busy frying up some fish for us to enjoy.

Places With the Best Fish Fry in the Rochester, Minnesota Area

There's nothing better than a piece of fresh fish smothered in a mixture of breading that is fried to a golden, crispy brown. If you've been looking for a place that has the best fish, check out these spots in the Rochester, Minnesota area.

One of the spots on the list, True Smoke BBQ, has a deal right now where you can save 50% your fish fry.  Actually, any of their food.  Seize the deal and get a $25 gift certificate for just $12.50 here.

Full disclaimer - I've cooked fish three times my entire life, not counting fish sticks.  I was also a vegetarian for a few years and fish was not part of what I ate growing up.  In other words, I am NOT the expert on finding great fish.  But I really am trying to incorporate more fish in my diet, besides a can of tuna.  Lent seems like the perfect time to sample some great fish in our area.  

Do you have a favorite place for fried fish that didn't make the list?  Let me know over on our app (just hit chat) or send me a message to my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram.
