Fish are wonderful to eat. The protein and nutrition that fish provides are essential to the human body. We all eat seafood and fish but sometimes a new presentation is needed. Fried or baked fish can just get old. Here is a recipe that is sure to mix things up and reintroduce you to a favorite part of our diet.
Fish Chunks are best when made from thick filets. The filets need to be cut into 1-1 1/2-inch cubes. Thick meated fish like pike, walleye, large trout and salmon, or halibut work well with this recipe.
This recipe requires few ingredients and little reparation.
Cut the filets into 1-inch cubes.
Soak overnight in salt water. A few teaspoons will do.
The next day, dry the cubes on a towel and add salt and pepper.
Take a zip bag and add some complete dry pancake mix. Add some Old Bay or your favorite seafood spice to the mix.
Shake the chunks in the bag to cover with the dry mixture. Fry in peanut oil.
Once fried, stab each with a toothpick and make a dipping sauce. Tartar sauce will do but you can also use a ketchup/horseradish/lemon juice style sauce.
There will be no leftovers. A fresh salad and dessert will finish off the meal nicely.
Eat healthy and have fun!
