Instructions

Prepare the batter:

Prep the fish:

Start Cooking:

  1. In a wide skillet over medium heat, add the oil until it is 1/4'' deep. Test the oil to see if it's ready by sticking a wooden spoon into the oil and if it bubbles, it's ready.
  2. While the oil is heating, dust the fish with a coating of flour. Once the oil is nice and hot, dip each floured fish into the batter , then into the hot oil and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side. They should come out nice and golden. ( try not to crowd the pan otherwise your fish will not come out as crispy).
  3. When ready, remove with tongs, and lay over a rack lined with a paper towel or foil season with additional kosher salt.
