Pan Fried Fish- Grandma Style
Grandma Elisabeta, my mother’s mom, was a excellent cook. She loved bringing us collectively about her dining table every Sunday and cook delicious meals for all of us . Her pies have been wonderful.
Her pilaf with chicken was to die for and her sour soups, a extremely conventional Romanian way to cook soups, had been remarkable.
I miss her at times. I wish she would be nonetheless close to to display me her secrets in the kitchen.
This recipe of pan fried fish is, once more, a really effortless and tasty one. Grandma utilised to make fried fish extremely often, especially in the summer, in her tiny back yard summer time kitchen.
Practically nothing fancy in the kitchen, feel me…
I heard numerous folks saying that if they would have a bigger kitchen with plenty of modern day utensils and big ovens, they would be able to make much better meals.
My grandma had a small gas stove with gasoline tanks, and a small table, couple of pots and pans and lots of talent to make a wonderful meal out of straightforward substances.
In my recipe, I utilized cod. Cod, at least in my humble view, has a great texture and doesn’t fall apart like tilapia, for illustration.
Any type of fish would work even though. Aside from the fish, you will require some flour and vegetable oil for frying. That’s it!
Some people might prefer a mixture of flour and corn meal. My grandmother employed that one as well.
I guess it is just a matter of preference and any approaches are fine. The combination of corn meal and flour will make the crust crunchier, the flour will make it smoother.
Each are delicious.
HOW TO MAKE PAN FRIED FISH- GRANDMA Fashion:
Ahead of you start off frying the fish, make certain it is totally dry. Extra moisture lowers the temperature of the oil. Also, when you put water in hot oil, it generates splashes and you may possibly effortlessly get burns. Oil burns are nasty, so be cautious.
Put together a plate or a bowl with flour. Season the flour with salt and pepper. Be generous. Also, do not use any herbs, they burn up in the oil and change the taste of the fish.
Get pieces of fish and toss them in flour. Make confident the fish is covered completely.
Spot a massive skillet on the stove, on medium heat, and pour vegetable oil in it, about 2 inches deep.
Grandma’s tip for checking if the oil is hot ample for frying:
If you insert a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil will bubble all around the stick when it’s ready for frying. If you have a thermometer, the temperature need to be in between 300-325F, and you should aim to keep it that way.
When the oil is sizzling, gently place coated fish in the skillet and fry for about five minutes on every single side until golden brown.
Don’t crowd the pieces of fish:
Frying in big batches will cause the temperature of the oil to drop as well minimal, resulting in a significantly less crispy (and much less tasty) completed product.
Between batches, hold your oil clean by scooping out any pieces of fish left behind.
Drain the fried fish on a paper towel-lined plate the paper towels will soak up far more oil than draining the fish on a wire rack.
Serve it with lemon wedges. It goes nicely with French Fries(created from scratch)
Voila! You just created fried fish, my grandma’s type.
I hope you enjoy it the very same way I enjoyed it while developing up!
