Description

Crispy, delicious deep-fried fish (tilapia, haddock, pollock or any white fish) with a light lemony flavor.

Ingredients

  • Oil, For Frying
  • 1-½ cup Flour, Divided
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¾ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Sugar
  • 1  Egg, Beaten
  • ⅔ cups Water
  • 2 pounds Tilapia Or Other White Fish
  • ⅔ cups Lemon Juice, Divided

Preparation

Pour oil into a large skillet suitable for frying (cast iron works awesome!) so the oil is approximately 1 inch deep. Please make sure your skillet is deep enough that the oil will not overflow while frying.

Heat oil over medium to medium-high heat until it reaches 350ºF. A candy thermometer works great for this.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; set aside. In another bowl, beat together the egg, water and 1/3 cup lemon juice. Add to the flour mixture and mix well until smooth.

Place the remaining lemon juice in a small bowl and the remaining flour in a separate small bowl.

When oil is ready, dip each fish fillet first in the lemon juice, then the flour, and finally the egg batter. Carefully drop battered fish pieces two or three at a time into hot oil. Fry for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork.

Drain fish on paper towels before serving.
