If you enjoy eating fresh fish, chances are you have probably deep fried them at least once. Although not the healthiest choice, when it's done properly, deep frying is a great way to cook fish. It's fast, cooking most fish in less than 5 minutes. It quickly seals the surface, locking in flavour and moisture, and it adds appealing crunch, colour and aroma.
Just remember to cook the fish in batches to avoid over-crowding, and it is best served as soon as it's cooked, so put the first lot on the table and tell people to dig in while you cook the other batches; each batch only takes a few minutes!
