Fried Speck Recipe?

How do yall batter and fry yall's specks?

Cornmeal?
Louisiana Fish Fry?

Louisiana fish fry or if you can find it, zattarans chic-fri.

Pancake batter dry is awesome as well. Just be sure and season.

As for white trout. I've never froze any

Zatarains or Louisiana fish fry, or 2/3 cornmeal and 1/3 flour or pancake mix.

Dredge in mix, dip in egg, dredge in mix. Let them sit about 5-10 minutes before you put them in the grease.

I like this idea- frying in part pancake batter

I'm thinking maybe adding a part of pancake batter a part Louisiana, and a part corn meal and dipping in egg- and spicing it up a bit myself

I like to rub yellow mustard on the fillets before I batter them. It gives them a nice flavor.

+10!! mustard does wonders. i tried every batter and frying method i could think of to get my san diegan wife to eat fried fish. slapped some YELLOW on it, fish fry and it was a hit for a bunch of old high class arse folks!!

i use Zat. southern crispy. its much better then the regular.

sometimes i let them marinate in heavy whipping cream, and other times in mustard. the mustard knocks down the fishy taste. same thing you do with tuna fish.

i'll say it for the 100x, when cleaning fish. DO NOT GET THE slime on the filets. that's where the fishy taste mostly comes from. people get sloppy and messy, and you can tell when they do. one friend that brought me some, i could hardly eat they were so bad. and these were 14" trout.

Season with Slap Ya Mama
Soak in KC Masterpiece Lemon Pepper Marinade
Sprinkle on flour based Fish Fry (do not put in shaker, it over coats the fish and makes them chewy)

This is how I fry all my fish and it's the best I've ever tasted hands down.

I think this is key! But we often all get lazy or drunk at the dock- usually one follows the other!

Never thought of the yellow mustard idea. I'm doing that! I bet it will work well on my frozen tuna as well- as that did not freeze as well as I hoped.

Appreciate all the feedback. COoking for some folks today

Also cut out any red meat and the layer of fat on the top and bottom of every fillet, that also has a bad taste and is not healthy for you...

hey Head, i'm heading out in 5 min. to look at that Bronco.
it does seem to be the type im looking for. they probably won't sell, since it's fenced in for some reason. maybe the parts they may sell...

you never know, could be the same family.

i once was selling jack russells, and this guy came over to look at one. i figured out he was this poster from a high school board that even channel 9 had a story on. "Scoop" i believe, several years ago.

so you never know...
