cooking for two

every time i tell somebody that we go fishing, the next question is always: "how do you cook 'em?"

and here is my fish.

i start out by pouring half a can of a 12 oz beer in a bowl. then i whisk 6-7 tablespoons of flour. this is the tricky part. the batter should not be too thick or runny. i add more flour until i get the right consistency. mix in a teaspoon of cornstarch & season with salt, pepper, dried dill & garlic powder.
it is also good to add salt & pepper to the fish fillets.
in a heated medium pan, pour 1/4 cup of canola oil. when the oil is hot, dip each fillet in the beer batter.
fry for about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown.
surprisingly, hubby was the one who taught me this recipe. serve with tartar sauce & seasoned fries on the side. {very typical american dish}
this was all the fish that we caught from our last fishing trip for the season. i place them in freezer bags. for reheating, i wrap it in aluminum foil & bake for about 15 minutes at 300F. and to make it crispy, open the foil & broil for about 3 minutes at 450F.
