Jacob took the older boys on a fishing trip this weekend. He says the lake they are going to usually has lots of trout, so that is what I am counting on. I don't know why, but when I think of summer nights, I always think of fish for supper with some lovely string beans from the garden, and berries and cream for dessert. Mmmm... I can't wait for them to come home.
I don't really have a recipe for my fish fry, but here's what I start with, adding more or less as I go. Also, I may add a few other spices, just depending on what I have on hand.
1 C cornmeal
2 tbsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp chili powder, more or less
2 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
Mix dry ingredients together. Take each fish fillet and quickly brush with milk and then coat in fry mix. Fry in hot oil in pan. Drain on paper towel.
Buttered String Beans:
Snap ends off string beans and then wash and pat dry.
Steam string beans as usual, leaving slightly crisp. In large frying pan melt 1/2 stick butter and add a little garlic. Saute garlic. Add beans and stir-fry, adding salt to taste.
