CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Every Friday during the Lenten season, churches all over Northeast Ohio are flooded with parishioners hungry for a good fish fry.

The latest issue of Northeast Ohio Catholic Magazine features the operation at St. Joseph Parish in Avon Lake.

There, they serve hundreds of fish dinners each week during Lent, including the famous dill sauce, a recipe from Father Ron Wearsch.

This week on Taste Buds Chef Dave Kocab will recreate Father Ron’s chardonnay dill sauce for your at-home fish fries.
