I cut the oil back to 2 tbsp. The mixture of half flour & half cornmeal gives a nice light crisp coating even when fried in the less amount of oil. I only fried them for about 4 minutes each side - The fish remained moist. Served with a slice of lemon & tartar sauce as suggested - Thanks Skip for a tasty dinner
