We do our best not to eat fried foods very often, but this recipe caught our attention. My family has always loved Long John Silver’s fish and their coating. So, this recipe has now become a favorite for occasional fried meals.
The thick batter causes the fish to remain juicy and cooked to just the right consistency. All we use is our largest pot that we use to make soups with so that the grease splatter is kept to a minimum.
Side dishes that go well with this are of course frozen french fries and a healthy salad made of butter lettuce and fresh tomatoes from our garden. What better way to splurge on a quick meal deal.
