How to Make Fried Whiting Fish

Step-by-Step

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