So to say it's just Friday is not enough.
You gotta get the Fish Fry Fever, because it is FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY!!
So we venture into delicious waters for todays recipe. I should say frozen waters. I have received many fish fry recipes from ya'all that enjoy ice fishing. Today's comes from Gary Beyer of Sugar Camp. Gary says he does not do a ton of open water fishing, but when it comes to ice fishing his family is lucky they see him. But when they do, they are treated to his favorite way of cookin' up that little gilled critter.
Today we dine on....Gary's Crumble Fish.
1 Pound of your favorite fillets
2 cups dry potato flakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, or to taste
2 cups butter flavored shortening, for frying
In medium bowl, combine the potato flakes, flour, garlic powder, seasoning salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
Soak fish filets in bowl of cold water.
In a deep skillet or deep fryer, melt and heat the shortening to 350 degrees F
Dredge fish filets in dry mixture and fry in the hot oil for 5 minutes or until fish flakes apart easily.
Remove from oil and place on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Sounds great Gary. I can't wait to give it a try.
