Friday Fried Fried Fish

Friday Fried Fried Fish

DSCF5925Even though baked is “healthier,” this dish is really, really good. I like to serve it with hush puppies, fried potatoes, and cole slaw.


4 fillets of white fish (I prefer tilapia)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup milk
¼ cup canola or safflower oil (or olive oil)
1 ½ tsp Kosher or Sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
1 egg
oil for frying (cannola or olive)


bowl for batter, bowl for flour
measuring cup/spoons
sharp knife/cutting board
frying pan


Cut the fish in chunks.


In a deep frying pan or a dutch oven, heat 2 inches of oil to 375° degrees F.


Mix together 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt, and ¼ tsp black pepper. This is to dredge the fish before putting in the batter. I use a pie plate.

In a separate bowl, mix together 1 cup flour, milk, ¼ cup oil, ½ tsp salt, and the egg.

Dredge the fish in the flour mixture.


Dip in batter.


Gently place in hot oil.


This will cook very quickly (2-3 minutes). As soon as it’s brown, turn over and let the other side cook. When both sides are golden brown, drain on paper towels.

Olive oil is always a healthier choice.
