“My husband is the fish fryer in our house and this is his specialty. Around here, Jack/Pike is readily available, so that's usually the kind of fillets we have on hand. And I don't care what anyone says, if you dip your fish in this mix and then pan-fry it in margarine, even Jack tastes marvelous!! We always have a sealed, plastic container of this ready in the pantry for summer. (The measurements are to the best of his knowledge, but you can tweak it to suit your taste.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put mixture in shallow bowl and coat fillets before frying.
  2. *Note: On the recipe card, hubby's written, "If in an experimental mood, mix with orange crush to form batter for deep frying." We haven't tried this at home yet, but a friend from his old job did it like that once and Greg loved it.
