Start with southern fried chicken and onion rings.

You've heard the parody of "The Cat's in the Cradle"? "The Cat's in the Kettle at the Peking Moon" and "Garfield's on my fork".

Last night we had homemade conch fritters and tater tots done in our "new" deep fryer, along with some chili lime shrimp. Great stuff! The night before I did wings in the fryer, along with potato skins which were first deep fried then stuffed and finished under the broiler.

Now you guys just cut it out. No more new toys needed here! Your stuff sounds really good, Craig!

Thanks! I just threw the chili lime shrimp together on a whim. I peeled and deveined a dozen or so large (wild harvested) shrimp. Finely diced about half of a fresh jalapeno (seeds removed). Minced a couple of good sized cloves of garlic. Heated a saute pan to medium high and added about 1-1/2 TBSP canola oil and 1 TBSP butter. Added the jalapeno and garlic and sauted until soft. Added some red pepper flakes, a liberal dose of silver tequila and a good squirt of honey. Add the juice of 1/2 a large lime. Add the shrimp until just cooked through. Removed the shrimp, salt the mixture to taste, reduce to a glaze and pour over the shrimp. Yum!

That sounds outrageous, Craig! Could you please post it in the seafood recipe thread? Yum!

I thought I mention that I bought an automotive funnel with screen for straining oil once, to use it just one more time before discarding the oil. Peanut oil isn't cheap. I'm pretty sure the plastic used to make the funnel is ok if the oil is cool when straining.

The other methods using cheesecloth or coffee filters were messy and very time consuming.

Thanks for the suggestion, Caslon. I may pick up one of those also.

Great idea!

I plan on using Canola oil for my frying.

Let us know how that works out for you. I have found that frying in canola sometimes yields a fishy smell I find objectionable when I'm not frying fish.
