Deep Fat Fried Fish
|Fish fillets/Frozen fish fillets or steaks||2 Pound|
|Bread crumbs/Cracker crumbs, cornmeal or flour||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Cut fish into serving-size portions.
Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Beat egg slightly and blend in the milk.
Dip fish in the egg and roll in crumbs.
Use a deep kettle with a frying basket and enough fat to cover the fish, but do not have the kettle more than half full of fat.
Heat the fat to 375°F.
Place 1 layer of fish in the frying basket and cook to an even golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Raise basket, remove fish, and drain on absorbent paper.
Serve immediately plain or with desired sauce.
