A personal favorite of mine! We have a lot of fish frys in the south & this was always a request by all. Original recipe called for cornmeal instead of cornmeal mix, but the texture & flavor is so much better with the mix.

    NOTE: I usually make up 2 batches of the dried ingredients & keep in airtight container in freezer & when I fry fish, I just get out a couple of Tablespoons & add a little onion & jalapeno & then pour in enough of my egg /milk mixture for right consistency for rolling, since I'm the only one eating them now.
