Deb Clarke just asked me how Felicia seasons her fried whiting. I answered her on Twitter but not sure if she ever got it. In any case here you can see exactly how it is done. Fried Whiting is my very favorite fish to eat. I could sit down with a pile of salted fried whiting and a couple of cold beers and have an incredible feast.

In my opinion the most underutilized species we have today. It also make an incredible soup.
