How Do I Fry The Best Fish Ever

If you've ever asked yourself what is the best recipe for fried fish ever then I have the recipe for you. And while I love to make this recipe with delicious farm raised tilapia now available in the frozen seafood section at most supermarkets you can make this recipe with any fish you can fry. My next favorite fish after tilapia is catfish fillets. But if you have not yet tried tilapia I would suggest you try it soon as it is truly one of the best tasting fish there is and you can cook tilapia so many different ways. Here we are going to make tilapia fish and chips.

Tilapia Fish And Chips

You can find tilapia in most supermarkets now. Most have boxes of tilapia for sale in their frozen seafood sections.

And here we are going to use four well washed large potatoes to make our potatoes for our fish and chips with. Like I said wash your potatoes very well with the peelings on and then cut them up into finger size pieces of potato. You will want to add the below to a large bowl.

1. 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil.

2. 2 Tablespoons Malt Vinegar.

3. 1 Tablespoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

4. 1 Teaspoon Salt.

5. 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper.

Mix all your ingredients together and mix well. Now add your cut up potatoes to the bowl and stir around well to coat your potatoes. Now you will want to place them on a greased baking sheet in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes until your potatoes are done and tender.

We are going to deep fry our tilpia fillets so you will want a home deep fryer or a pan safe for deep frying.

Now you will want to have a large bowl that you can place two cups of whole milk into and four large eggs. Beat this together very well with a hand mixer or use your blender to make it very smooth.

Now you will want to mix the below in a bowl.

1. 2 Cups All Purpose Plain Flour.

2. 1 Cup Self Rising Cornmeal.

3. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Pepper Seasoning.

4. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

5. 1 Teaspoon Salt.

Mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl together. Now what you want to do is dip your tilapia fillets into the milk/egg mixture and then into the dry mixture and coat well. Now put it back into the milk/egg mixture and back into the dry mixture so that you end up double breading each piece of tilapia. Now you want to deep fry each piece of fish until it is golden brown.

And you now have one of the most delicious fish and chip dishes that you will ever eat and once you try it I think you will agree that you now know how to fry the best fish ever.

You can serve with homemade slaw and hush-puppies for one of the best meals you will ever eat in your life.

Last year in Cambodia and Viet Nam I learned cold beer was a must because the Asians cook with a lot more HOT peppers and spices to flavor their fish than in your recipes. HOTTEST here is New Orleans with their HOT Cat Fish. Some fishy fish have a HEAVY TASTE and can handle the spices. But, In Mexico City, where Tilapia is a mild fish favorite not only does the kitchen lace it, but my tablemates as well. No accounting for taste. David Russell
