Something’s fishy in Kendall Square! We all know New England has amazing sea food. But do you know how to prepare it yourself?
Clam fry mix:
- 1 cup fine corn flour
- 1/2 cup All Purpose flour
- 1 T onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 T salt
- 1 tsp white pepper
Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
- 1 black bass, gutted, scaled and cleaned
- 1 cup buttermilk
- Salt and Old Bay seasoning to taste
- Lemon wedge
Score fish in three places along each side. Soak fish in buttermilk for 15 minutes, flipping frequently. Remove and coat all over with clam fry mix. Fill a Dutch oven with oil about half way and bring to frying temperature, about 350 degrees. Place fish in carefully and leave for 7-8 minutes.
While fish is frying, make your tartar sauce.
- 1 cup mayo
- 1/4 cup pickled green tomatoes (we use Grillos)
- 2 T chopped parsley
- 1 T mustard
- 2 T lemon juice
- 1 tsp Old Bay
- 1 tsp salt
Combine all ingredients and scoop into small bowls.
Remove the fish and drain on paper towel. Season with salt and Old Bay. Serve immediately with tartar sauce and a lemon wedge.
