Faire des yeux de merlan frit

Avoir un regard niais.

Apparue au XIXe siècle, cette expression a remplacé "faire des yeux de carpe frite" (XVIIIe siècle). On l'employait alors pour parler des jeunes gens qui se lançaient des regards tendres et amoureux. L'expression a peu à peu changé, mais elle signifie toujours que l'on a un regard niais.
