I use peanut oil(but any is ok)

meatfish fish and chicken strip breading

batter is;

1 box jiffy corn muffin mix

equal panko

equal breaton sesame crackers ground into powder or whole wheat cracker

1/3 to 1/2 jar mrs dash garlic and herb

I start with 1/2 the fallowing and let people taste test,and make a portion with out either and add cayenne and chili(I watch my sodium) some folks love it salty.

1 tsp lemon pepper(cheaper brands are high sodium)

1 tsp fav season salt

add cayenne and chili powder if you like it hot

pat fillet dry and dip in 50/50 egg/milk wash,roll in breading and deep fry.

tarter sauce:

any store bought tarter

add 1 jar of finely chopped artichoke heart

about 4 fine chopped sweat gerkins

1/2 of a lemon juice

add a T or 2 of mayo or miracle whip

I have not tried baking this yet but my guess is that it would work fine and be much healthier.(

I too bought fryer this year and used it to fry up some fish for my daughters baptism. It worked slick because you can cook a ton of fish at one time. No one was waiting with the plate held out. What I used was a 50/50 mix of Pork extra crispy Oven Fry and Regular Shorelunch. I used canola oil instead of Peanut. (I'm cheap :)) I fed 15 people it took 2 boxes of each, one bottle of oil, and a playmate lunch cooler FULL of sunnies, crappie, and walleye.

I go easy... I soak the fillets in evaporated milk(many use egg, I use the milk as I think it makes a crispier batter.) Then I just use Cracker Meal and a little flour and Lowrys mixed in.. take the fillet out of the milk dip in the cracker meal, fry.. that simple, and ohhhhh so good.

As Deitz Dittrich does, I do as well when I don't have all the other stuff handy and its pretty tough to beat(something to be said for simplicity).I've never tried the evaporated milk but I will next time. I'll do a side by side and may never use egg again.

Thanks for the suggestion.

When life deals you lemons use them on fish with fresh dill and rosemary.

seasoned flour, whatever season's you like( i like lowry's also ), eggwash, than into a batter like panko crumbs or heck even some more seasoned flour. After applying the final dip into the flour give it some time for the flour to soak in so that it doesn't all float off and turn your oil into a mess.

I love Mckormicks fish and chips batter with beer instead of water. I also do a instant potato coating......dust filets in flour, then in egg, then into instant potato flakes you have to press the fillets into the flakes.....watch your oil temp. The flakes burn easily, but makes a nice delicate crust.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
