Personal Notes:
Wash your fish well, and allow to dry on paper towels. Season with your favorite seasoning, we use seasoning salt and black pepper. Batter/dust the seasoned fish with the breader. Coat it well, while preparing to heat the oil in your pan. Once the temperature is good for frying (mid - high). To test the temperature of the oil, to guarantee its ready, run your hand over running water, and flick your fingers over the oil. If you hear a popping sound, that means the oil is ready to drop your fish. Allow your fish to become golden on the bottom, and then flip to the other side. It only takes a few minutes. Have good utensils for handling. Cook longer if you like your fish crispy. If you like it soft, cut back on cooking time. Once the fish is golden on both sides, place on a platter with paper towels and allow to cool for 5 minutes, and serve the fish hot. The hotter the fish, the better it is. Sprinkle "hot" fish with Texas Pete hot sauce. I guarantee you'll go back for more.
My husband has cooked for Family, Friends, and many Church gatterings, up and down the Eastern Coast. Everyone's request is for Queenie's fried fish and chicken. I guarantee that you cannot eat just one piece, you will come back for more!
