Today's lunch -
fried mahi mahi
Prepare a mixture of
2 parts flour: 1 part cornstarch
Plus seasonings - freshly ground salt and pepper,
paprika, Old Bay.
Pick filets out of buttermilk,
shake it up with flour and cornstarch mixture.
This was fried in peanut oil
The particular oil is not key.
Except for olive oil.
Do NOT fry in olive oil.
Smoke point is too low in olive oil.
Temperature is key.
You want the temperature of the oil to be 350 degrees.
I made a quick saute of spinach leaves.
Heat a tablespoon of butter and a teaspoon of oil
in a hot pan.
Add in rinsed spinach leaves,
freshly ground salt and pepper,
1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil,
and about a tablespoon of sesame seeds.
Toss and wilt the spinach for a few minutes.
Squeeze a little lemon juice over both the spinach and mahi mahi.
