It's within the realm of possibility that there maybe some Scottish in my blood. (That's my way of saying yes.)

I've tempura fried sushi rolls (after slicing) and thought they were pretty good. I thought I had invented something original until one day I saw it on a Japanese restaurant menu. I've heard of people battering and deep frying Twinkies and other outrageous things.

There's probably nothing new in cooking, just countless recombinations and variations of the same things. Well at least not since the New World was discovered by Europeans and both continents benefited from importing many types of vegetables and food animals previously unknown. That was a huge revolution that in some cases almost completely transformed many cuisines. Consider Italian cooking without tomatoes or Thai cooking without chili peppers.

I've used Trader Joe's frozen, and they're about the same as fresh made, except more expensive and a bit less work, IMO not enough to justify the price.

Rather, get some oil and butter and salt and pepper and maybe some rosemary or other spices together, and you can easily do this better than store bought.
