    I have used Andy's fish fry batter for quite a long time, until recently, when I tried Zataran's!!! It's me new favorite!!! They also have a decent hushpuppy mix as well. Dip in egg and milk, roll in Z's, and hit the 350deg grease, good stuff!!! :rock:

    I like McCormick's "Fish n Chips" when I'm doing it at home, but Andy's or Louisiana for fries. :cheers:

    I soak my fish in beer over night, then roll it in, egg then, McCormicks lemon pepper then flour then pan fry, steam up some clams, curried scallops topped with sauted mushrooms and butter.

    I switched to Zaterains Fish Fri mix. Just enough spices to give it a bit of a kick but still have the fish flavor.

    I love andy's original for crappie and andys red for catfish....

    Another good way for crappie is mix 60% cornmeal 40% flour lots of black pepper and Lowery's season salt or Tony Cashere's cajun mix....Cut the filets into bite size pieces and fry it in a skillet in real careful not to get the butter too hot because it burns easy. Change the butter between every couple batches to keep it fresh.

    Tonight I sprinkled a couple crappe filets with lemon pepper and put it on aluminum foil with a couple pats of real butter and grilled it over hot charcoal.....AWESOME.
