Coat in flour, then dip in eggwash, and roll in cracker crumbs (either Ritz or Townhouse - roll very fine with a rolling pin in a ziplock bag) and fry in peanut oil. A little more work, but hard to beat.

Send them to me, those things can be extremely toxic if handled incorrectly :) :D :lol: :dizzy:

Just pullin' your chain, Drakes batter mix, little beer, and two eggs. Make the batter medium thick, fry in butter flavored crisco (if you think you'll like that) and brown on both sides.

I'm watching for that killer Hush Puppies recipe Mmm Mmm Good w/gills

As for the gills I also like the Drakes & Beer for a "wet" batter
If you like a "drier" thin coating I like this stuff I came across at a local shop here in sw Mi

It's: Deer Hunter 22-10 "Fisherman's Beer Batter Mix" and comes in a clear plastic 1 lb package
says on the bottom of the label:
Distributed by Butcher & Packer Supply Co
1468 Gratiot
Detroit Mi
ph: 1-800-521-3188

The nice thing about this stuff is that it's not messy---just pour some in a plastic bag and shake to coat the fish---and listed in the ingredients is
Spray Dried Beer :dizzy:
Both this coating and the Drakes n Beer are excellent---now where's those Hush Puppies:corkysm55

Another good Hushpuppy recipe is......

Take the leftover Drakes and beer batter and add cornmeal, flour and chopped onions. Spoon into frier.
They're great that way and you don't waste the batter.

That sounds like a winner too---maybe we should start a Hush Puppy thread :)

Wip up a couple eggs, throw a few pretzels in the blender and mix with drakes. SLap them in some hot canola oil. Makes my mouth water

Pat the fillets dry, shake in Golden Dipt Fish Fry mix (dry-not batter), fry for 2 1/2 min in 375 degree oil. Lightly salt, a dash of lemon juice.....OH MYYYYY!

We like to dip the fillets in egg and then coat them with Progresso Italian bread crumbs before frying them. Fantastic!
