Arthur Treacher's Fried Fish

Type: Fish
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

3 lbs 1362g / 48ozFirm white fish fillets
2 tablespoons 30mlLemon juice
1 cup 237mlMilk - or more as needed
2 cups 125g / 4.4ozFlour
3 cups 330g / 11ozPancake mix
2 cups 396g / 13ozClub soda - (approximately)
1 teaspoon 5mlBasil
1 teaspoon 5mlFreshly-ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlGarlic salt
  Cooking oil - for frying

Recipe Instructions

Cut fish fillets in half, making triangular shape. Cover with milk and lemon juice and refrigerate 3 to 4 hours. Drain off milk. Dip fillets in flour to coat each piece lightly. Let dry on a cookie sheet, making sure pieces do not touch.

Add oil to deep fryer or heavy pan to a depth of at least 3 inches. Heat oil to 425 degrees. Combine pancake mix, basil, pepper, garlic salt and enough soda to make a thick batter, about the consistency of buttermilk. Dip floured fillets in batter and add to the hot oil one at a time. Fry 4 to 5 minutes.

Remove filets to cookie sheet, again, not letting them touch and keep warm in a 250 degree oven. (Do not heap fish as this creates steam in the oven and makes coating soft.) Deep fry remaining filets, keeping the depth of the oil at least 3 inches.
