I love fried food.............................

I'm the guy that would eat fried lettuce..............

Funny thing is, Whenever we fry stuff at home, I don't like it.............

It bothers my stomach too.............

I don't want to use the term 'leakage', but it deffinately gives me that 'not-so-fresh-feeling'..........

I'm a big fan of grilling inside of a tin foil 'boat'.

Done in a cast iron frying pan with butter and a little pepper makes me happy every time. edit: IMO it does taste better when done on an open flame.

Batter fried in deep oil at 360 degrees. One cup flour, one egg, one teaspoon baking powder, one tablespoon oil, sufficient water to make a thin batter. Cut fish in two-finger pieces and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Dip in batter and drain off excess before frying to a light brown. Salt to taste after cooked.
