Perfect Fried Cod Recipe

01 February 2020 Bookmark0
Fried Cod is our favourite fried fish. It’s crispy on the surface and flaky on the within . And it's perfect for dunking in homemade tartare sauce.

When it involves fish, my family is all about the white fish. Cod specifically. We love it because it’s a light white fish with a firm texture. this suggests that it’s not super fishy tasting, which suggests it’s great for the kiddos.

Now, my family will eat cod any way I serve it, but if we’re being totally honest, fried is that the best. I mean crispy fried fish, with a squirt of lemon dunked in tartar sauce? It doesn’t get far better . AM I RIGHT?

What batter is best for fried fish?
When I leave to eat, i'm always hesitant to order Fish and Chips. Not because I don’t like it , but because, I don’t love battered fish and chips.

Battered fish is usually dunked during a wet batter then fried. For me, even fried, wet batters have a bent to urge a touch soggy. they appear to take in more of the oil. that's why, once I make fried cod, i select to try to to a panko crust. It leads to crispy, flaky fish each and each time.
