Fancy Fried Bass


1 to 2 pounds of bass, crappie, or any fish fillets
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup flour
butter or margarine
1 cup or more sliced fresh mushrooms, onions, and small carrots that you will have to cut like french fries
1 tomato (slice like you would a lemon)
1/4 cup green onions
1 bellpepper chopped
2 tbls. white cooking wine
1 tbls. lemon juice
1 pkg instant rice

Cook the rice while preparing the meal.

Place the flour on a plate. Sprinkle fillets with salt and pepper, then dredge lighlty in flour. Melt about 2 tbls. butter or margarine over medium heat. Fry the fillets until golden brown on each side and remove to a plate, keeping them warm. If necessary add more butter or margarine to the skillet and add mushrooms, green onions, bellpeppers, tomato, and carrots. Cook them for about 3 minutes then stir in the wine and lemon juice. Pour this mixture over the fish and rice that was already cooked prior to the fish.

Ummm. Made me hungry!

A simple fried fish recipe will put golden fillets on the table that will rival any you've had. I prefer just salt for bass, crappie, bream or walleye, as they are just too fine tasting to cover up the flavor. Heat oil hot enough to light up a wooden match floating in it. Whip a couple of eggs with salt & whatever spice you like. Dip the fillets in the egg mixture then dredge in Potato Buds. Slide battered fillets into the oil and deep-fry until golden, about 4-5 minutes, removing before they float. Make a sweet tight crust. Keep that oil hot, not frying so many they cool it down or bump against each other. If frying up some stripers (red meat removed), marinate the fillets in milk a couple of hours before cooking.

Substitute the nasty fungus for eggplant and we might have a deal. Mushrooms are nasty. It's like eating Athlete's Foot. :eek:

My Dad likes mushrooms and that is one thing that did not pass down through the genes. Mushrooms are nasty. You can have all of them that you want. I will take the egg plant.

I have never had egg plant.  Is there something that it can compare to?
I say that it's a lot like sliced potatoes, when fried. It's a very good vegetable, and you should try it. Gorgeous color to it, and when fried, the smell with starve you, and you will love the flavor.
