Fried Fish

One of the greatest joys of living in Louisiana is having access to fresh seafood. One organism, the catfish. We love some fried catfish! I like to keep the steps simple and let the homemade spiced batter mix do it all!

I like to fry everything. I’m not getting a little fluffy to get this cute fillet. But my family loves it so thin and crunchy! Therefore, I slice a few wisdom-length pieces and fry them a little longer.

Fish and Chips is basically the best order of any restaurant and I go if it sounds good on Yelp (haha – always pics yelp! Check your restaurants all!), And this recipe is a great pub choice along with other pub favorites like Buffalo Wings, Super Crispy Chicken tender and classic beef chili.

  • Ingredients :

° 1 pound of fillet fish (such as haddock, tilapia, or cod)

° Oil (for deep frying)

° 1/4 teaspoon paprika

° 1/2 cup flour

° Salt to taste)

° Pepper to taste)

++Optional: tartar sauce, homemade remolide sauce (to serve) or slices of lemon

  • Directions :

Collect the ingredients.

Pour 1 inch of oil into a frying pan and heat it over medium heat to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a flat bowl or deep plate and mix.

Dip a fish steak or two in the flour mixture. Make sure it is completely covered on all sides and gently remove any excess. Renew with remaining slide .

Work in batches, fry the fish in hot oil for 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown, crunchy, and fully cooked. Remove it and place it on a cooling rack to allow for drainage or on a plate lined with newspaper or paper towel.

Serve hot with lemon slices, tartar sauce, or homemade remolide sauce.

Enjoy !
