Get ready for fish fry season!With fish fry season quickly approaching, it’s time to get your plan ready for enjoying all that golden-brown deliciousness.

A time-honored tradition in the Cincinnati area and much of Ohio, fish fries are a staple of the Roman Catholic Lenten season in and around the state.

This year, lent begins on Ash Wednesday on Feb. 10 and runs through Thursday, March 24. During that time, Catholics refrain from eating meat other than fish on Fridays. Those Fridays during lent have become a chance to socialize and raise donations over a fried fillet of cod.

But you don’t have to be Catholic to enjoy a good piece of fried fish and you don’t have to wait until Friday. Any day is a good day to fry fish.

The Right Supplies

If you want to do a fish fry right you should rent a professional-grade fryer powered by propane or even use a propane burner and a large stock pot to fry your fish favorites.

Fish fry recipes can vary widely according to the cook’s taste, but your basic fish fry recipe, includes cod fillets, flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, seasoning, and hot oil.

Take each piece of fish separately and place into the flour, making sure to cover both sides. Dredge the fillets in the beaten raw eggs and then into the breadcrumbs and seasoning mixture covering both sides.

Fish should be cooked for about three minutes each.

Make sure your oil is at 375 degrees. Slip the fish fillets into the hot oil and cook for about three minutes each.
