Fish Fry Menu

by Jody Narantic on September 17, 2008

One of my favorite meals is fried fish.  My favorite – bluegills that we caught on Barkley Lake, KY which we fillet and freeze.

What we typically have with our fish is  homemade french fries and hushpuppies.

Fish Fry

Breading for fish:

You can use any type of breading you like.  My family enjoys it breaded in white corn meal.  I also like buying a lemon-pepper breading or breading for chicken.  You can most likely find this type of breading at your local grocery store near the fresh fish department.

After we thaw our fish, they are cleaned and rinsed in cold water.  Then pat dry with paper towels.

Place your breading in a huge bowl, add your fish, put the lid on and shake to coat your fish.

We have a deep fryer or you can use a pot on the stove.  Depending on the size of your fish would depend on how long to fry.


Homemade french fries – Peel potatoes and slice in about 1/4″ slices. Rinse with cold water and dry. Fry in fryer.

Hush puppies - You’ll need 4 cups white cornmeal, 3 cups hot water, jalapeno peppers, green onions, salt and pepper. Chop up about 4 green onions, 4 jalapeno peppers. Boil water, fill separate bowl with white corn meal, green onions, jalapeno peppers, salt and pepper.  Slowly add hot water.  You want the mixture to be a little mushy.  Scoop out a big tablespoon and fry in pan on stove.    They don’t have to be perfectly round.  We make ours kind of thick and flat.


Coleslaw – We buy from store.  :)

Please remember, because of all this southern frying, you will need lots of shortening.

I love a good fish fry – it isn’t really all that healthy though, is it :)

I thought I left a comment here, but I guess on Wednesdays I’m so focused on putting the Community Wednesday post together I forget to comment.

That looks so good. I may have to try and talk my Dad into doing a fish fry soon. I need some good fried fish.
