Whole small fish, or fish fillets
1 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
Dip cleaned, whole small fish (or fish fillets) into 1 cup of milk seasoned with 1 1/2 teaspoon salt. Roll in a mixture of 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup cornmeal.
Start frying in 1/4 inch sizzling hot salad oil; reduce heat to moderate, and fry to a golden brown, turning only once. Fish under 1 inch thick, needs 3 to 5 minutes cooking on each side.
