Dip in egg and then roll in italian seasoned bread crumbs. You can also add some finely grated parmesian cheese to the bread crumbs, it melts and tastes awesome. Deep fry them and serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce (mayo and a couple chopped up pickles, sometimes I'll add a little finely chopped onion for a little extra twang). Mmmmmmmm, I'm getting hungry just typing this up.
Trust me, try this. Go buy a big can of BUTTER flavored Crisco. I said BUTTER flavored right? OK anyway, I will assume you are frying pan (sunnys,perch, blue gill) fish.
Get your fillets as dry as you can get them with a bunch of paper towels.
Grab your favorite batter, I like golden dipt, add some milk and an egg. Mix it up so you have a nice thick wet batter. After you have melted all the BUTTER flavored cirsco down under a medium to almost high heat, dip your fillets into the batter and right into the hot BUTTER flavored crisco. cook until both sides are a golden brown and fish is flaky in the middle. This is great for walleye also. Then you can post up and tell eveybody else how good it is. Er...if you don't like it....ah...you did it wrong. It's not for everybody, but I have turned alot of people on to this, and it is the only way they do their fish now. Trust me guys, try it once.
I save my stale plain flavored tortillas chips and grind them up to as close to a powder as possible. Roll the fillets in flour, then dip in milk/egg liquid, then roll in the ground up tortillas chips and fry in bacon grease (or whatever oil you use.)
If you want'em Southern fried, do it this way. Mix up half flour and half corn meal, add salt, black pepper, and season salt to taste in a ziploc bag or bowl. Dip your filets in butter milk, then put them in the flour/meal mix and cover them completely. Drop'em in hot grease and take'em out when they float to the top. They are lightly breaded, but crunchy with a wonderful taste. :salude:
if the fish have been frozen, thaw, cut into chunks and put in a bowl. season with lemon pepper salt. now, pour milk in bowl until fish are covered...let soak 1 hr. pore out milk and let fish drain. dredge in zateraines crispy southern style breading and deep fry at 350*. cooking times will obviously vary depending on size of pieces...usually around 3 minutes is good. tasty on walleye, perch, gills and crappies. :thumbsup:
