Frying fish

I normally just fry in some coconut oil, but I would like to try something that is similar to a cornmeal batter, what do you guys use? If it matters, I will be frying catfish fillets.

I made a good batter using the fantastic flour mix(BTF)but I'm not sure if you use it or not.

If you do, you can find the recipe in the sticky thread.

Yes, it's the same one! You can find it in the link below and in the fantastic flour mix sticky thread at the top of this forum. You would probably leave out the onion powder if using the batter for fish.

If it were me, I think I'd try Gina's onion ring batter, which uses Ouzoids BTF mix.


41. Onion Ring Batter-Ginaaaaaa

I decided to try making onion rings with the BTF mix using my old onion ring batter and they came out really good!! They were light and crispy. It makes a LOT of batter so you may want to cut the recipe in half unless you're making them for a big crowd. I only used 2 small-medium onions and still had PLENTY of batter leftover. You could leave out the onion powder to save on carbs. I may try using less corn meal next time too. I didn't time them, I just cooked until golden brown.

Onion Ring Batter

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups BTF 19.2 net carbs
3 tablespoons Cornmeal 21g carbs
3 tablespoons Onion Powder ( I used 2 tablespoons) 15g net carbs
2 teaspoons Salt
1 1/2 cups Milk ( I used calorie countdown) 6g carbs
1 Egg
1 cup Water or more as needed

Directions:
Blend all ingredients well. Coat onion rings in BTF then dip into the batter. Fry a few at a time allowing room so they don't stick together. I just used a pan on the stove top heated on medium high heat. I needed to add more water to the batter because it thickened up.

61.2 carbs for the batter, does not include the onions.

I just made fried catfish fillets on Saturday. It was not batter like but they were so good. I used pork rinds crushed in my bullet, parm cheese and a package of Hidden Valley Ranch Spicy dipped them in egg first and fried them in oil.. They were so good and the spicy ranch mix gave them so much flavor. My non low carb family members loved them too.

Julie, those sound good. I opted to just use the almond meal/flour. Delicious.
