We just had our fish fry at a club I belong to.

We purchased ocean perch, breaded it in a cornmeal breading and dropped them in a deep frier(outdoor propane turkey cookers). The trick is making sure your oil is hot but not smoking.

Certainly will give it a go, thanks for that Constance

In my opinion Bassa is fine for restaurant and home use when it's eaten immediately but with my situation where it's a take out and could be eaten a 1/2 hour later it doesn't work. The fish seems to keep cooking and goes very soft with no texture.

Cod is the traditional choice for Fish 'n Chips, but I really really like halibut for fish 'n chips (though, IMO halibut is much too pricey and delicious to be used for fish n' chips- in most case I prefer to sear it and pan roast, I love it natural flavor). My absolute favorite fish for fish n' chips has got be freshwater bass, but I don't know if that's sold in stores anywhere. I had it during a fishing trip in Wisconsin once; from lake to plate in about 2 hours. Amazing!

Hake or Coley are good stand-ins for cod and it`s much less expensive.

I'm sorry but I disagree with you kitchenelf, Orange Roughy is marketed as such and is a totally different fish which we import from New Zealand.

Nobody here targets Catfish and there is no such industry, the only area it shows up in any quantity is in the Gulf of Carpentaria where it was once marketed as "Gulf Cod" but that industry faltered once people found out it was Catfish.

Catfish sells here because it's marketed as Bassa and also because of the price, it was once marketed as "Pacific Dory" but that didn't work.


Bassa has made noticeable inroads in to the take out shops in South East Queensland and northern New South Wales but once it is cooked it is sold as Cod.

The re-naming of fish really gets under my skin, I for one will never sell imported fish, yet others will sell imported cheap rubbish from Asia under a local name.

I enjoy halibut for my fish and chips but I don 't buy fresh fish. I buy the frozen stuff from the store, if I'm buying fresh from a fish market, cod it is.
