Maricque’s Friday Night Fish Fry

Fridays mean one thing in Wisconsin: fish fry. The Catholic tradition of eating fish on Friday helped make fish fries an institution. And while you can find a fish fry just about anywhere in the state, commentator and food historian Terese Allen takes us to her favorite place: Maricques in Green Bay, a Wisconsin institution since 1934. Produced by Todd Witter.

Terese Allen is an award-winning food writer and author of “The Flavor of Wisconsin.” The song “Friday Night Fish Fry” is from our good friend, Madison singer-songwriter Sean Michael Dargan.
