CLASSIC RECIPES FOR FISH, Freshwater and Saltwater

 

TO FRY FISH.
(Domestic Receipt-Book, 1858)

Fry some slices of salt pork, say a slice for each pound, and when brown take them up, and add lard enough to cover the fish. Skim it well, and have it hot, then dip the fish in flour, without salting it, and fry a light brown. Then take the fish up, and add to the gravy a little flour paste, pepper, salt; also wine, catsup, and spices, if you like. Put the fish and pork on a dish, and, after one boil, pour this gravy over the whole.

 

Fish are good dipped first in egg and then in Indian meal, or cracker crumbs and egg, previous to frying.
