I have 4 frozen Whitings(fish)

Hi,

My parents went fishing and caught lots of Whiting, which they froze straight away (bcos they had too many), then they gave me 4 of them cleaned of decent size with the head.

Just wondering does anyone have some really fan dangle way to cook whole Whiting?

I have a couple of plain ways, one involves curry powder and one involves flour. So just looking for some TNT recipes if possible.

They are still in the freezer until I decide what to do with them.

Thanks

FRY FRY FRY!!! To me that is the only fish to fry! A very light dry breading with cornmeal in it.

My 2 favorite beers to drink with that is Budweiser or FREE!

hmm pounds i don't have any idea. Probably a kilo all up, which i think that is your pound roughly.

They aren't huge thats for sure, probably bit over 30cm (by decent size i meant that for me, they are a nice size and bigger than what they usually get lol)
How big are the Whiting is your parts?

The Whiting I am familiar with would run 2 lbs. max. It sounds like we are talking about the same fish. So my first choice would be take the head off, and either filet or butterfly then fry the fish. Or you could poach the fish just a bit, remove the flesh and make "crab cakes". Or you could cook the fish in a sauce. Maybe like sauce piquant served with/over rice. My favorite pick would be fried. They are pretty good while hot. I don't care for the fish when cold.

Enjoy!

We have a fish fry every year at church and I go through 100 lbs or about 42kilos. I use a dry cornmeal mix with salt and pepper to drag them through. You can dip them in milk or eggs buy batter may get to thick.
