DEEP FRIED PERCH PART TWO
« on: Jan 13, 2019, 07:16 PM »
Some people like a bit more breading, but still don't want a heavy breading or batter.

I modified the recipe, so the fish has slightly more breading by using an egg white wash.

When I use an egg wash for frying I don't use the yolks.
The yolks have a lot of fat, and fat attracts fat when deep frying so it will retain some of the oil it is cooked in if you use the yolks.


Egg whites slightly whipped with a couple of tablespoons of water


Add your fish filets


I use a strainer when I set up my wet dry station so the fillets are not too wet


Each fillet is individually hand pressed into the breading. The breading is the same recipe used in part one.
Don't bread the fillets until you are ready to deep fry. If you bread them up ahead of time they will stick together and make a mess.


I always use peanut oil which has a high smoke point and is a fantastic choice for deep frying


Of course, now we are not sure which way is better.
I talked with the family and we are willing to do an in-depth study to determine which one is better.
This could take several months to complete, but we are willing to put in the time required :)

Good Luck all  :tipup:

NOTE: please see part 1 for more information

I missed recipe one?
I did a post on deep frying perch in 2015, which I refer to as part one.
It's in a separate post called "Deep Fried Perch" which is lightly dusted and fried.
It has the breading recipe and some other information.

Scroll down and you should find it.

Good luck All  :tipup:

To fish or not to fish? That's a stupid question!

With perch and panfish, I always scale them and leave the skin on. The skin is quite tasty.
On larger fish like Pike or Walleye, I usually remove the skin.
I guess it's more of a personal preference, some people don't ever leave the skin on the fillets.

Had to order on line, guess their more common back east.
