    tasty crisp fried fish

    so how the hell do you make it happen>
    the fish fried up crisp and tasty?

    I've been catching stacks of fat rainbow trout, but my batter leaves a lot to be deisred.
    What's the deal? Flour? Oil? It's about a lot more than beer, I know that much.

    I like the crisp, tempura battered style fried fish.
    Mags from Japan or Mississippi? Or in the know otherwise?

    Help me make that shit happen in the kitchen-

    thanks

    Paging Blurred to the fryer.

    In my experience, I'd go with anything Bobby Flay has to say, then Emeril, but in this particular instance you might want to do a google search like this -
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/search/de...=774&gosearch=

    From what I think I may have heard one time, maybe, possibly, club soda?

    The key to tempura/beer batter stuff is to deep fry it in hot enough oil - like 350-375. Finding a recipe is easy. Then you need a fairly deep pan and enough oil so the shit will float (and an oil thermometer makes it a lot easier). Then go to town. Don't burn the house down.

    deep frying trout because that's what we got. tough life.

    I have the oil deep and hot, house still not burned down.

    I think it is the flour. Could be wrong. But I think it is the flour.
    *** your input here ***

    And thanks for the idea about the food network. Never thought of that. Maybe I should google it too! I heard that works great but I've never tried.

    Sri Lanka.... isnt that just a place to surf perfect waves? Or is it a magical land with everything a man needs???

    On the topic of deep frying.

    Panko battered deep fried zucchini is pretty damn good.

    Just a quick flash fry for the batter and the inside is still all crisp.

    We grew soo much zucchini in the garden had to find new ways to eat it. Also works with cucumber.

    Frying fresh fish.
    Less ingredients the better.
    Small trout?
    Pull skin.
    Clean in water.
    Coat in flour/bread crumbs.
    Fry in oil until coating is golden and flip, repeat.

    Or

    Heat pan to medium high heat
    Chuck pad of butter in
    Throw trout fillet in, skin down
    Cook till skin curls and meat turns white and almost flakes
    Finish with fresh squeezed lemon and dill.

    Keep your shit dry, use grapeseed oil, batter at will depending on region.

    I like a small brine, dry, quick douche in baker's flour, spiced egg wash, and if you want more, then kill your crumbs, panko, sourbread, but make them fine.

    Supper quick hit in the wak! FKNA.

    I've never deep fried trout but done plenty of cod. Try this, it sounds crazy but it's damned good:

    Mix up pancake batter with beer. Use the kind of batter that only requires water. Add some Old Bay if you want it to have a little spice to it. Mix it on the runny side, you want a thin coating of batter on the fish. Rinse fish & pat dry before battering.

    Oil @ 375. I prefer peanut oil.

    Easy and works great.

    That does kick ass. So does flaked po ta toes. We are going on flashpoint for the oil and p'nut works great.

    I feel for you but trout isn't really a deep fry type of fish.
    I have been in this State for 30 years and I am willing to admit that I am part of the problem.

    Rainbow trout?? Are you kidding?? That is damn good stuff!!! I'd rather grill it anyday than deep fry it. But if you have lots of it, I guess give it a go. Damn that makes me hungry for fish...and I haven't even had breakfast nor coffee yet!

    ++ on the beer batter, though!!!!

    Alaskan style beer batter:

    1 cup beer. Drink the rest.
    1 cup flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    salt
    pepper
    1 egg

    Add mustard, dill, old bay or other seasonings to taste. Make sure the fish is dry, even sizes. Trout can be overcooked easily as it is generally thin filets compared to cod or halibut. Think thinner batter for thinner filets.

    I have had good crisp fish using a fry/bake method. Mostly halibut/cod, have not cooked a lot of trout, but this should work.

    coat in panko or whatever coating you want.
    fry in oil for a couple of minutes.
    put in 400 degree oven for another couple of minutes.

    crisp and tasty.
