|Yes, I could have done a better job staging this photo. My excuse ... my family was yelling at me for making them wait while I took photos! LOL|
My husband is a fisherman and our daughter loves to go fishing with him! I'm not sure what she enjoys more, the activity or the end results ... a meal of freshly caught, fried fish! We have tried multiple ways of cooking up their catch of the day, and this is by far my family's favorite!
Gather Your Ingredients:
- Fish Fillets - We usually have about a pound or two, just depends on how they were biting that day!
- 1/2 c AP flour
- 1/2 c yellow corn meal
- 1 T Lawry's seasoned salt
- 1 t sugar
- 2 eggs - beaten
- Oil for frying
- Combine flour, corn meal, salt and sugar in a medium bowl or zip top baggie. Beat eggs in a separate bowl.
- Heat about 1 inch of oil over medium to medium high heat, depending on how your stove cooks. Fish cooks quickly, you do not want to burn the crust but you also do not want the crust to absorb the oil. It's a fine balance.
- Coat fish in the flour/corn meal mixture, then dip into the egg. Next coat in the flour mixture again.
- Fry for about 3 to 5 minutes on each side, or until it reaches a nice golden brown. What it closely and check a piece before you serve it. Once you get your system down, you'll be able to tell when it's ready :) Drain on paper towels.
