Fried Whiting Fish Recipe @pinch

If you like fried fish, this fried whiting fish is a delicious option. It is a basic way to fry fish without dredging in liquid or an egg. Doing it this way allows the cornmeal to stick to the fish and helps to create a heavy crust. If you have never fried fish like this, the crust is thin and crispy. No sogginess at all. Whiting is flaky and has a similar flavor to cod. We seldom eat fried foods in our home anymore, but every now and then we crave some fried whiting. Umm delicious with some Louisiana hot sauce. Hope you enjoy!

Intructions :
  • If possible, buy your whiting fresh from the seafood market and have them fillet the fish. I wash the whiting quickly in vinegar then rinse with cold water and pat dry. Place whiting in a flat container and sprinkle with pepper and a little salt. Set aside in the fridge while you make the breading
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn meal, flour, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic powder
  • Heat a large skillet with oil on the stove. Make sure the oil is at high temp but not smoking
  • Take the whiting fillets and dredge them in the flour, one at a time, and shake off excess
  • Place the whiting in the skillet. Cook each side until golden brown (about 5 minutes on each side). Fish will float when done
  • Drain on a paper towel
  • You can also throw in some scallops or shrimp following the same directions for the whiting. Enjoy delicious fried whiting!
