How to Make Fried Whiting Fish


  • 1If possible, buy your whiting fresh from the seafood market and have them fillet the fish. I wash the fish quickly in vinegar, than rinse with cold water and pat dry. Place fish in a flat container and sprinkle with pepper and a little salt. Set aside in fridge while you make the breading.
  • 2In a large mixing bowl, combine the corn meal, flour, black pepper, cayenne pepper, salt and garlic powder.
  • 3Heat a large skillet with oil on the stove. Make sure the oil is at high temp but not smoking.
  • 4Take the fillets and dredge them in the flour one at a time and shake off excess. Place the fillets in the skillet. Cook each side until golden brown (about 5 minutes each side). Fish will "float" when done. Drain on paper towel.
  • 5You can also throw in some scallops or shrimp(pictured with the fish) following the same directions for the fish.
