Simple and easy ! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
1 pound cod filets
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
3/4 cup club soda (can also use plain water)
Oil for frying
First, make the batter by combining all of the dry ingredients. Mix together.
Add club soda and mix until combined. Batter’s done!
Pat dry 1 pound of cod fillet with a paper towel. Removing its excess liquid will reduce splatter as you fry it.
Place two pieces of cod fillet into the batter. Let them sit for a few minutes so the batter thoroughly coats the fish.
While the fillet’s are sitting in the batter, fill up a small cast-iron skillet with oil until it is 1/2 to 3/4 inches deep. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. This will take about 5-10 minutes. Use a deep-frying thermometer so you know when you’ve hit 350 degrees F.
Place two pieces of battered fish into the skillet and fry for 3-4 minutes. Do not over-crowd the skillet as this will lower the oil’s temperature.
Flip the fish over and fry for another 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer the fillets into a plate lined with paper towels. This will help get rid of excess oil.
Let the oil reach 350 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the next batch of fish. Repeat until you’ve fried the entire pound of cod fillets.
