2 (roughly) Pounds Snapper Fillet, bone and skin removed
2/3 Cups Flour
1 Tablespoon Paprika
1 Tablespoon Cracked Pepper
1-2 Tablespoons Basil
1 Tablespoon Salt
Oil for frying
Deep Fryer! Or a cast iron skillet that is deep enough to fry fish fillet in.
Heat oil to a medium heat level or about 350°F.
Fillet the snapper into desired sized pieces.
In a shallow wide dish, like a pie plate, sift together the flour, paprika, cracked pepper, basil, and salt.
Dredge the fillets in the flour mixture and set on a tray for about 3 minutes or longer in a fridge.
Dredge the fillets again.
Fry in heated oil for between 2-3 minutes until flaky.
Serve hot and fresh.
Goes great on top of:
Puttanesca and egg noodles!
