Author Topic: Homemade breading. No Doctoring "Shore Lunch" What's your fav?  (Read 10004 times)

I'm always doctoring up my homemade recipe.  Here's my current perfection, but i'm always looking for a new one:

-crushed saltines (plenty of salt there, no more needed)
-flour
-garlic powder
-garlic bread sprinkle
-pepper
-oregano (for looks and antioxidants)

If you love your fish, you'll use grapeseed oil.  Will not burn as easily as any other oil, and is the healthiest oil on the market.  Actually lowers your LDL.

Red pepper!  I never thought of that one.  I'll give that a whirl once.  Sounds hot, but i bet the right sprinkle would make that tasty.

ach!  I forgot about lemon pepper too.  This has been a good forum.  No doubt will I have a new tweaked recipe to try.  Does anybody have a batter recipe that they reccommend???  I never liked using batter because it always caked up the fork and made the oil dirty. 

Good Fishing!

i batter dip fish at home, too messy and too much prep on the ice
for shore lunch... i just light toss the fish in a little salt and peppered flour
toss it in the pan with a little olive oil
on the ice I always find less mess is best

as for my batter recipie at home

its simple

white cornmeal, flour, a few eggs, heavy cream and salt and pepper
i generally cook by look and not measurements, usually turns out okay, just make sure it is thick enough that it will coat the fillets nicely

toss the fillets in flour then dip in the batter

drop in a hot fryer basket in 350 deg oil

man you got yourself a fish fry

bon appetite

On the ice I use a beer batter that I make up before hand.
Flour
Cornmeal
Baking Powder
S&P
Beer
Whisk it up and put it in a tupperware container.  Once on the ice, just drop all the fillets right in the batter.  Take them out one at a time, shake off the excess batter, and put them in the oil.

At home it's breading
Flour seasoned with whatever I'm in the mood for -- pepper flakes, S&P, Lowrey's, whatever
Egg wash seasoned the same
Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs)
The classic three step breading.  Dredge 'em in the flour, dip 'em in the eggs, roll 'em in the Panko, and toos 'em in the oil.  The Panko makes the best breading around.

Here's my favorite batter recipe, which is also great for onion rings, mushrooms, shrimp etc...

1/2 can of beer
salt and pepper
1 tablespoon oil
1 egg whipped
flour to thicken (

heat the oil in a deep pan (cast iron is the best) to about 375. dip the fillets in and fry to a deep golden brown.  having the oil hot sears the batter and does not allow the breading to get greasy.  add your favorite spices if you like. 

PS  When cooking shrimp like this, get a good quality marinara sauce for dipping, like CASA VISCO.  (all of their sauce products are top-notch)  man-o-man, YUM!
GO GIANTS!!!

Potato breading
Tried alot but the whole family is stuck on this one.
one bowl milk
one bowl flour
one bowl beaten eggs
one bowl Potato Buds(other brands instant potatos will work)
Dip your fillets in order and into the oil they go until they float(2-3 min. max)
salt to taste and pace yourself...you'll want to eat them all

For breading I just grind a cheap bag of pretzels in my blender.  My brother-in-law adds some Old Bay Seasoning.   :P

Try Italian bread crumbs for a change in place of the flour or cornmeal.  Is there a favorite?

Try adding some cajun seasonings, I like Tony Cachares or Zatarines, and Parmesan cheese. Adds a nice little kick.
