DIRECTIONS

  • In one pie plate, combine the milk and pepper; this is your 'wet' mix.
  • In another pie plate, combine the flour, cornmeal and paprika; this is your 'dry' mix.
  • In an electric skillet, heat the oil to 350°F.
  • Dip fish into the 'wet' mix, then roll in the 'dry' mix to cover completely.
  • Fry the fish filets, a few at a time, in the hot oil for approx 4 min or less per side, until the fish is nicely browned and serve.
  • Don't fry them all at the same time or you'll cool down the oil too much and it will have to heat back up to temperature (NOT a good thing).
  • If frying in a dutch oven, use a meat thermometer to check your oil temperature, before you fry.
  • If using a deep fryer machine, please follow your manufacturer's instructions/booklet.
  • Substitutions: if haddock isn't available, substitute hake, pollock, flounder, tilapia or cod instead; you can also use the SKIM version of evaporated milk.
