Copycat Arthur Treacher’s Fried Fish

I’ll be honest…I’m not a huge fan of seafood.  On the other hand, my brother loves it!  So I decided to make a nice fish dinner for him this past weekend while he was in town visiting.  Him and his wife loved it!  I made myself a broiled chicken breast…lol.  So here is the recipe, I’m sure you will enjoy.  It doesn’t get more simple than this one.

3 pounds fish fillets
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups pancake mix
3 cups club soda
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 egg

Serves 4

1  Dip moistened fish pieces evenly but lightly in the flour. Dust off any excess flour and allow pieces to air dry on waxed paper, about 5 minutes. Whip the pancake mix with the club soda to the consistency of buttermilk. It should be pourable, but not too thin and not too thick.
2  Beat in the onion powder and seasoned salt. Dip floured fillets into batter and drop into 425F oil in heavy saucepan using meat thermometer. Brown about 4 minutes per side. Arrange on cookie sheet in 325F oven until all pieces have been fried.
