This is an excellent fish coating for deep fried fish. We have annual fish fries at our summer camp with all the pickerel (walleye) we catch and this is always a big hit. We use this same coating to coat french fries, yummy!
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons onion salt
- 1 tablespoon basil
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
- Coat fish fillets on both sides.
- Deep fry and enjoy.
A simple yet tasty way to fix DH's fish. I am not a big fan of fish so as a rule only make it for DH, such was the case today. DH's said the coating was crispy and flavorful with out taking anything away from the fish. He said was an easy five star. Thanks for the post.
This simple mix sure gave a boost to the Mahi Mahi tonight. I just have garlic powder and onion powder so I added a 1/4 tsp of salt (I made for 2 fillets). Even Hubby loved it, and that's saying a lot. It doesn't coat thickly but it makes a lovely light coating of flavor. I should also mention that I pan fried the fish in a small amount of canola oil instead of the deep frying. This makes a lot too! :D
My girlfriend has this almost exact same recipe, except she uses it to fry chicken breasts (in a little oil in the frying pan). After the chicken is cooked, she removes it and adds some sliced mushrooms, maybe a little wine, then after the mushrooms are cooked, she readds the chicken and tosses in some sliced green onion. Delicious and good enough for company.
