Can it finally be here? Can the day that shines brighter than most be here? Could it be? Could it be FISH FRYYYYYYYYYYYY FRIDAY! Yes It is!!!!
So this week I recieved a recipe from Todd Whittman. Todd said in his e-mail that he wanted to share a recipe that his grandmother used that everyone loved...even the picky fish eaters.
It is called Sweet and Sour Fish.
BATTER AND FISH:
1 lb fish fillets, cut into 1" cubes
3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. double acting baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. + 1 tsp. vegetable oil
SWEET 'N SOUR:
1/2 c. sliced carrots
1/2 c. pineapple chunks (canned in its own juice)
1/4 c. diced red & green bell peppers
2 tsp. each firmly packed brown sugar
2 tsp. teriyaki sauce
1 tsp. each cornstarch & red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp. salt
To Prepare Fish:
- In a small bowl, using fork, combine dry ingredients and add water. Stir until batter is smooth.
- Add fish pieces to batter until all fish is coated. In non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat and cook fish until golden
brown on both sides, 2 to 4 minutes and carefully turn pieces over and cook until brown on other side.
- Remove fish to a platter and top with warm medley sauce.
To Prepare Medley:
This is a dynamite recipe. Todd your grandmother was a genius.
In a 1 quart saucepan, cook carrots until tender. Stir in pineapple chunks, red and green peppers and cook until mixture is heated. In small bowl, combine reserved pineapple juice with remaining medley ingredients, stirring to dissolve cornstarch; pour over carrot mixture and cook, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and is thoroughly heated, set aside.
For your recipe submission you will recieve a fish fry of your own.
