mersing it in deep hot fat. Wipe
the fish dry, dust slightly with a
little flour into which you have
sifted a little salt and pepper. Dip
the fish into the beaten egg (one
egg with as much water as its
shell will hold, beaten lightly together-).
When taken from the
kettle lay on sheet of brown
paper or blotter to absorb any
Do not have the fish cold, as it
will lower the temperature of the
fat and become greasy before it
begins to brown.

and quickly put into the hot fat.

thick. When a rich golden color
remove from fat, put iir'a pan and
set in oven for a few minutes.
Butter or butter substitute is

slab pork is much better, use the
slices of pork around the fish on
the platter when served.
