Tasty Tuesday

Fish, cornmeal and Hush Puppy Batter.

I love the red bass, so what I am fixing is breaded and fried red bass.

1 egg
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound bass fillets
2 cups crushed cornflake crumbs
1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
1 quart oil for frying

In a medium bowl, beat together egg, water, flour, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place fish in the bowl, and thoroughly coat with the mixture.

In a separate medium bowl, mix the cornflake crumbs and Cajun seasoning. Dip the fish in the crumb mixture, and thoroughly coat all sides.

In a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). Fry the fish until golden brown, and flesh is easily flaked with a fork.

You can find the recipe for great hushpuppies on your Martha White Flour bag, I always add onion to mine too.

Shread some cabbage and a carrot, a little onion and make a good slaw to go with it, deep fry a few FF and walla you have a fabulous fish dinner.
Enjoy your dinner, and I use a simple Vinegar/sugar/and Mayo mixture for slaw. Fix according to your own taste. You can buy the dressing already prepared too, it is very good.

Today is the day I will find out when and where my surgery will be, and we will go eat dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant in Brunswick, Keep me in your prayers please, so tell me now, what will you eat this Tasty Tuesday?

Hope your day is a great one, and God blesses you. 

Hugs ♥ Blessings

Trusting all going well with your knee. A friend had both done this year and she is a new woman.

Long time since I've made a batter!
We had pumpkin soup and an imposible pie today.
