Growing up in rural Alberta fish was not a staple in our diet. Living on a farm meant chicken, beef and pork. It was not until I was married and had a family of my own that I added fish to my meals.
My girlfriend Denise, who lives in Texas, has been making me this delicious fried fish whenever I stay with her. She introduced me to a wonderful fish seasoning called: “Zatarain’s Seasoned Fish Fry.”
It makes the fish flavourful, crunchy, and even though it is fried in oil, it does not make the fish greasy.
I buy either tilapia or bass filets – whichever is on sale. I like the mild taste of these fish when cooked.
[print_this]Technique: How to Fry Fish
To fry fish is quite easy. Pour some of the fish seasoning on a plate, and place a fish fillet on top. Note: Make sure both sides are coated.
Add coated fish fillets to a hot oiled frying pan with at least ½ inch of cooking oil.
Fry on low/medium until lightly brown. Flip over and fry the other side.
Once fish fillet is done, place on plate with a paper towel.[/print_this]
Fried fish like this goes perfectly with the Tartar Sauce Recipe. Try it out and let me know what you think!
