Hi everyone,

I'm seeking TWO recipes:

1. The fried fish coating, that is served in numerous places to "coat" catfish in OK
(When I was stationed at Ft Sill, many places served GREAT fish with that thin & great-tasting "flour-based"coating.)
AND
2. A traditional recipe for "Pittisburg-style" (Northeast Texas) HOT LINKS.

NOTE: I'm willing to pay someone for either/both recipes.

thanks, satx78247

I like beer batter on my deep fried fish.
The batter recipe is most likely in the seafood section.
There are a couple Texas Hot Links posted in here under the sausage section.
Take a look at them and see which one suits your fancy.

Tempura batter I have made is usually reg flour or rice flour an egg and Ice water, batter needs to be cold for tempura.

Sounds good Kevin, but you forgot the beer. Not Old Milwaukee either. Laughing

Zatarans Fish Fry for catfish. No need for dipping just rinse and pat dry then shake.

I think I know what you are talking about, but I have never been able to get a really good recipe. However a chef once told me the following. I wanted the same coating you describe.

If I'm not mistaken the fish coating you are talking about is a "blend" of flour and corn starch (plus spices). There is what is called in the industry a secret ingrediant that is "Turmeric".

The ingrediants are blended together using beer and put in the frig for a couple hours.

The batter is then used to coat fish/shrimp/scallops. whatever!

I am very sorry to be so vague but the one thing he really emphasized was the secret ingrediant " Turmeric" being the key to the whole recipe.

If you get somewhere with this recipe please contact me and let me know.

I am now editing this:

The above should not be confused with the coating used on frying "Cornish hens".
This is a super thin coating that comes out water thin and is some what hard to the point that it almost would "Click" if one tapped a fingernail on it. It is sweet and absolutely FANDAMNTASTIC!!!

Bad news is I have never been able to get any information on a recipe for how it's done!
I first had this at a restaurant in Mt. Airy Maryland witch is now closed.
Anyone knowing how they did this please contact me.
