Ingredients:2 C vegetable oil
2 lb fish fillets (tilapia)
1.5 C flour in zip-loc
2 C dry pancake mix
2 C club soda (16oz bottle)
1 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp Lowry's seasoned salt
tartar sauce
Notes:Can use beer instead of soda.
Instructions:Cut fish into 2-inch chunks.
Pour oil into skillet or dutch oven to at least 1/2 inch deep.
Heat to about 400 degrees for Frying.

Drop fish pieces into flour and shake.
Place floured pieces on paper towel to dry for 4-5 minutes.

In bowl or large zip-loc, combine pancake mix, soda, onion powder, and seasoned salt. Batter should be a thinner than molasses - add soda until it is thin enough to pour.

Dip fish pieces into batter, let excess drip off, then carefully place into oil. Fry about 3 minutes and flip for 3 more minutes. Fish should be brown on all sides.
Cool on paper towel.
Check center of first pieces for doneness - white rather than translucent.

Serve with tartar sauce, and french fries made in another dutch oven.

Serves 6-8.
