Try These Three Types Of Fish For Your Next Fish Fry

Fish and chips are one of the most enjoyable meals to consume. Also known as fish and french fries, people of all ages enjoy this meal. If you are wondering what types of fish to use for your upcoming fish fry, you have come to the right place. Listed below are our top three selections for your next fish fry. 


Try these types of fish.

Pollack For Your Fish Fry

Pollack is an underrated addition to this list as it has gained notoriety as a fried fish. Pollack is part of the cod family, so it has a similar taste and texture. Pollack is a juicy and tender fish and possesses more flavor than cod. Batter and fry your cod, then garnish your fish with lemon juice and tartar sauce.

Try Haddock For Your Fish Fry

Haddock is often used by many people when frying fish. Although haddock is not as flaky as cod, it has more taste. Haddock has a sweeter taste than cod, which compliments the fish batter you use for your fish fry.

Fried Cod

Cod is the most popular and first choice that comes to mind for many people when preparing a fish fry. Cod is mild and tender, and the right breading makes for the perfect complement to tartar sauce. Cod is the best option if you like to fish with a bit of crunch. It also tastes well with essential ingredients like salt and vinegar.

Fried Catfish

Catfish is arguably the best option when frying fish. Catfish is easy to access and has a meaty, flaky consistency that retains while being fried. You can quickly fry catfish with oil, salt, and pepper.

Fried Tilapia

Tilapia is relatively inexpensive and can be found in nearly every grocery retailer country. It has a mild flavor, is flaky, and is moist in texture. The most common preparation method for cooking tilapia is frying because this will allows for a nice golden crust.
