Ive been trying to fine tune my fired fish cooking skills. Just for a background on my cooking skills , its little to none but I'm ready to learn!

Ive tried panko crumbs and bread crumbs but it always turns out terrible! Does any body have guidance or a recipe that is yummy that I can do with a cast iron skill or dutch oven?

I mainly cook crappie, cod, and catfish.

Thanks!

Keep it simple...

4 cups corn meal to 1 cup flour
Cut the fish in bite size
Don't let the oil get too hot, just so it sizzle when you drop water in but doesn't pop
Soak the fish in milk
Remove from milk, smother in mix, shake excess
Drop in skillet

As soon as you remove, lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper or my favorite, creole seasoning.

Roll them in mustard, coat with cornmeal, let them set for awhile, and deep fry them at 375 degrees.

Again with a taste hider, secret serum. Soak the fish in a bowl of ice water, dredge in Louisiana fish fry or a mix like Txhunter said and fry. Don't get the grease too hot.

All those work well. If using a deep fryer, when the fish floats in the oil it is done.

Don't forget

We used the blue bag Louisiana Fish fry for years and have since switched to the yellow bag Louisiana "New Orleans Style"

It seems a little spicier.

Louisiana fish fry for cat fish up



But for Crappie and Bream (pan fish) do the following:

Soak your Crappie filet in milk.

Heat your cast iron skillet with your choice of cooking oil (just enough to cover the bottom of the skillet) on medium heat while prepping your fish filets.

Take saltine crackers (salad crackers) and roll them into crumbs.

Strain the milk from the fish filets and completely cover each one with the crushed cracker crumbs.

Place them into your pre heated cast iron skillet and cook to a golden brown on each side. food

All fried fish taste the same to me.. I crack a few eggs in a bowl mix it up and roll the fillet in that then roll it in the Louisiana fish fry. The egg really helps hold the crust on the fish.

No soaking in anything is needed.

Well cleaned fish dredged in Zatarans fish fry. ccrispy southern with lemon is our favorite and we spice it up sometimes with tony's.

How are you doing the Panko that its no good?

Same as above, well cleaned fish egg wash then in penko then egg wash then panko then fry.

Always fry at 375, I prefer canola oil.
