How do you make southern fried whiting fish?
The method is very easy. You can pan fry whiting or use a deep fryer. I honestly prefer to use a skillet because of the fish fries within 10 minutes total. It is not hard to cook. No reason to bring out the deep fryer. Plus it will take less time to cook the fish than the amount of time it will take you to wash and put away the deep fryer.
The ingredients I used to make the fried whiting fish are – cornmeal, cayenne pepper, 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour, salt and pepper to taste, dried basil, garlic powder, and vegetable oil for frying.
