We are able to get wild caught cod here for a pretty affordable price, so we purchased that. I used a Tyler Florence recipe for the batter. The only thing I was missing was rice flour for the initial dredging and I think it would have helped. Regular flour seems to repel rather than absorb the batter.
The fish turned out great, tasting very much like a good restaurant batch. Mmmmm.
Anyway, on the the pics -
The amount of oil just makes me cringe since we normally cook lowfat
Daddy got the monster piece of fish. That is a full size plate folks!
And just so you know, the kids had their veggies BEFORE dinner as an appetizer. We often put out a plate of carrots and broccoli with hummus while we cook dinner since they're more likely to consume a larger amount then. For this special night though, I attempted Kale Chips.
Take a head of kale and chop it into large pieces, discarding a hard pieces and stems. Toss with olive oil and sea salt and bake for 20min at 300 degrees. They turn out super crispy and light.
I wasn't sure how it would go over with the kids. But Ephraim said "yummy lettuce chips!" and it took about 10 minutes to see this
Adin keeps asking me to make them again, so I guess they liked 'em. I wonder what they would taste like with coconut oil instead of the olive oil? I may try that next time.
