who adds spices to flour before dredging ?

I never did when I was younger and I do not remember it being done. I add spices to the egg wash and even sprinkle it on the portion being dredged. I see everyone doing this today and it seems like a waste of good spice...please advise

Probably every restaurant you've ever ordered fried food in.

Why does it seem like a waste of spice?

Most people I know put spices in the breading/batter/flour. In fact a lot of premade batters already have spices in them.

I use the one of the cajun season salt things like tony's or whatever else has accumulated in my spice collection. I hate those things generally and would never put them on food usually. I load it up too, like a 1/4 of a cup to 1/2 cup flour. Crazy, I know - I'd never get the Slap-Yo-Momma out of my cabinet otherwise.

I did it to the roast I cooked Saturday. Spiced up the flour with some Emeril's Essence and some spicy Montreal seasoning. Browned both sides, cooked the veggies down, deglazed with a bottle of Negro Modello and cooked low and slow for about 4 hours.

Salt pepper garlic creole seasoning all improve the flavor of the breading.

Also season the meat

Hardly ever the wash.

Especially if you start with too much flour, in which case you're correct in wasting spices, but most anyone will tell you to season the flour. Just use good proportions.

This would be true 500 years ago. Spice is cheap as dirt now.

Most definitely season whatever I'm dredging in.

I always do. Season the meat, season the dredge. I don't season the egg wash.

When I first moved out there was a running joke at my appartment about High Power Flour. Me and my buddies ate the heck out of some stuff fried in it.

General rule of thumb, season every layer of every component of a dish

I use Tony's or similar to the protein, then just pepper to each component, that way it does not get too salty
