#3390 - Crispy Fried Fish

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 cup flour + extra for drenching
2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. white sugar
1 TBSP canola oil + extra for frying
1 cup water
fish fillets (skins removed)

Batter: in a bowl add flour, salt, baking powder and white sugar--stir to mix. Add canola oil and water--whisk until mixed and smooth--set aside. Fill a cast iron skillet 1/3 full with canola oil--turn heat to medium and heat oil until bubbling hot. Lightly drench a fish piece in a small bowl of flour, then dip the fish piece into the batter and place it directly into the hot oil. Repeat with other fish pieces but don't let them touch each other in the skillet. Fry until bottom sides are browned and crispy, then flip and fry the other sides. Place fried fish on paper towels to drain off extra grease.
