fried fish my way .
« on: February 23, 2013, 08:53:55 PM »
1/4 cup golden flax meal.
salt, pepper, garlic powder, hint of hot pepper mix with flax.
One scrambled egg, and a little drop of heavy cream.
Hot oil, I use canola.
fish filet's.  I use cod, whiting, or flounder.
Dip fish in egg wash, now into flax mixture. They will be nice and crusty.
Now put in hot oil and fry them up approx 6 minutes a side depending on thickness of fillet.
When done add some fresh lemon, a shot of hot sauce. For a side dish, I make coleslaw from the FTS book.
This is a great meal. ;)

Hi, jetfan! :)

Here's a tip for coatings...

I've found with fish that if you first put on a light coating of flax meal (or other low carb alternative),
then put the fish in the egg wash,
then back into the meal for a heavy coating,
the egg and coating will stick to the fish MUCH better!

This also works for chicken, beef, pork, etc.! ;D

I Love Fried Fish!!!Umpa and I spend lots of time fishing both fresh water and salt water. There's nothing better than fresh fish. I too enjoy the golden flax coating, thanks for posting your recipe...... Hey Umpa, want some fried fish tonight?

 When I moved had to change from salt water fishing to fresh. I miss fishing on the beach.
LOVE all seafood. Hey Umpa, The golden flax is just like corn meal. Yummy Stuff. (rather be on a beach)  :'( :'(

Heart healthy fried fish ;) You get omegas from the fish and the golden flaxseed.

I know TooSweet was talking about an infrared, oil free fryer when we were talking about deep frying turkey at Thanksgiving time.  I think I saw a counter-top version on Amazon.  I certainly don't need a turkey sized fryer.  Has anyone else used an infrared fryer for frying fish, chicken, twinkies (only kidding)?

I love my good old fashion cast iron skillet, best deep fryer ever! I have an outside gas burner keeping the grease outside  ;)

I haven't seen the smaller ones, but the one I have does a wonderful job on chickens, ribs, roasts....whatever you want to cook in it.  I'm not sure how fish would hold up though  ::)
