Fish Fry Recipe
This Recipe is meant for Boy Scouts.
1 to 2 C vegetable oil
2 lb fish fillets (tilapia) cut up
1.5 C flour in zip-loc
2 C dry pancake mix
2 C club soda (16oz bottle)
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp Lowry's seasoned salt
Pour oil into skillet or dutch oven to at least 1/2 inch deep.
Heat on stove or coals to about 425 degrees.
Drop fish pieces into flour and shake.
Place floured pieces on paper towel to dry for 4-5 minutes.
In bowl, whip pancake mix, club soda, onion powder, and seasoned salt. Batter should be a bit thinner than molasses - add soda until it is thin enough to pour.
Dip fish pieces into batter, then carefully drop into oil. Fry about 4 minutes and flip for 4 more minutes. Fish should be brown on all sides.
Cool on paper towel.
Serve with tartar sauce and french fries made in another dutch oven.
