In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Deep-Fried Fish Nuggets. These fresh fish nuggets are coated with a batter and then deep-fried in 1 inch of oil, resulting in deep-fried fish similar to that served in a restaurant.


Fresh fish nuggets 1 Pound (use any type of fish)
All purpose flour 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Cornstarch 2 Tablespoon
Baking soda 1/4 Teaspoon
Baking powder 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Water 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Peanut oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For deep frying as needed)



1.In a small bowl, mix flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and

water until smooth.

2.In a pot, heat oil until it reaches 375 degree F.

3.Place about 4 fish nuggets at a time into batter, coating them completely. Use tongs to place them, one at a time, into hot oil. Fry, keeping temperature fairly constant, until crisp and browned all over.

Remove nuggets from oil and place on paper towel to drain. Fry the remaining.


Serve hot with Apple Cabbage Coleslaw and enjoy!
