Fresh fish: Crappy, flounder, catfish, walleye
Peanut Oil

Catch some fish, clean and fillet 'em. Dry off with paper towels.

Crush saltines in a bowl, add some salt and pepper. Beat an egg with a few tablespoons of milk. Add salt and pepper and cayenne if you want some punch.

Fill skillet with oil to about 1" deep. Heat until it sizzles when you flick some flour in.

Dredge fish in egg/milk mixture then in saltines. Pat the saltine curmbs a little if needed. Drop in hot oil. Oil should sizzle not spatter too much.

Fry until edges start to brown and flip over. The second side will fry up fast. Keep oil hot so the fish isn't greasy. When cooked good, remove to a plate covered with paper towels.

Finish frying all the fish. Serve with tartar sauce and fresh lemon wedges. Mashed potatoes and cole slaw are great with this.
