- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp of paprika
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 egg, separated
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1 TBS butter, melted
- 2 cups bluegill fillets (perch or crappie works well)
- flaked oil for deep frying
PREHEAT oil to 370 to 375 degrees.
Sift together flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and baking powder. Mix egg yolk with milk and add to dry ingredients; beat well. Add melted butter. Fold in stiffly beaten egg white and fish flakes.
Drop by tablespoonfuls into hot deep fat and fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels or a brown bag.
