Breading Colonel Jim's http://coloneljimsbreading.com/ Henderson, Ky. Accept no substitutes!
Fresh frozen. Caught by Jed Millet using artificial bait-somewhere in Alabama
Electric fryer-master built. Key is temperature. Takes awhile to get it to 350 degrees
Breading, double paper bags, utensils to remove fish
1 egg to cup and half milk. This is more-feeding 35!
Do one to two handfuls of fish in ample Breading.
1-2 handfuls. No more per fry batch
Calm before the shake.
2 handed technique for the weak! Shake, shake, shake.
Toss in basket-safety first. Gloves and aprons.
Tins with plenty of paper towels
Ready for fryer
I call this "crappie interuptus". After 5 min remove from oil for 30-60 sec and then put back in for 1-2 min. It adds a crispness without an offensive burn. Crappie should float to surface
2nd fryer as contingency. This is a turkey fryer. Temp control essential. Use thermometer and get heat to 350 for each batch.
Batch is close to completion.
Serve when Right out of fryer. Plenty of sides.
