​In years past, Gut Check has chronicled the many Lenten fish fries happening around St. Louis. This year, we're reaching out to you, dear readers, to share the location of your favorite local fish fry. The most creative submission will be chosen by Gut Check on Friday, February 24, and rewarded with a $20 gift certificate to Porter's Fried Chicken, for, might we suggest, the catfish, battered cod or Jack salmon?

To enter, simply submit the name and address of your favorite fish fry location in the comments section below, along with at least 100 words explaining why it takes top honors. Be sure to also include your name and email address, as Gut Check will contact the winner to claim his or her prize.

Update: Congrats to commenter Sal E., who submitted the fish fry at St. Cecilia's Parish (906 Eichelberger Street, 314-353-2455).

Hands down - St. Cecilia's

Amazing mexican dishes including Chile Rellenos! Seriously, they have Chile Rellenos... Plus fish and shrimp tacos, chips and salsa, in addition to typical fish fry treats.

Expect a wait if your not an early bird, but it's worth it when you step in to the lively atmosphere of a band, dancers and festive decor - all taking place in the open gym. You will most likely be waiting in line, but don't you worry - there are roving Corona/Budweiser carts, chips and salsa and even free fried shrimp samples if your lucky. Go early, for the Rellenos doesn't always make it to the end of the line.

St. Ferdinand, Florissant:Every Friday (year round!) for nearly 60 years,This North County church has been the best dears.Two lines, wrap around and out the door they go,As young and old wait for cod, catfish, hush puppies, fries, pies and mo'.Even with several days of prep the food goes fast,So make sure your ass ain't last.Don't be put off by the crowd or line,

That's how you know it's worth it- it's a sign.The cashiers have got the system down,But they ain't no Soup Nazis they're the reason St. Ferdinand's the best in town.Top honors in Florissant for sure, Head North for a Fish Fry Top Honors detour.

St. Peter's Church in the City of St. Charles has a great fish fry. Catfish & Cod dinners, Peel and Eat Shrimp platters, Great sides - hushpuppies, coleslaw, frog legs, corn bread etc. There is a reason you have to get there early and the line goes out the door. Of course theres buckets to buy and soft serve ice cream for dessert.
