When shad is in season, we can’t get enough of its sweet, rich flavor. Try them crumbed in seasoned breadcrumbs and baked for an easy seafood dinner.
Shad season is short and sweet, and while most of the time we like to keep shad recipes simple, there’s no better way to celebrate this spectacular fish than with a decadent dinner.
We love a crispy fish sandwich, and now that shad is in season, we couldn’t help but take sweet, flaky shad fillets, batter and fry them and see how they would work in a sammie. Turns out, fried shad sandwiches are fried-and-true delicious!
