FRIED WHITING
Munchie Cooks Fried Whiting

Fried whiting usually takes center stage when I host a fish fry. There is something about that crispy, flakey, white fish that is perfect for a fish fry. You know the kind, the kind where you invite a few family and friends over, but word gets out that whiting is on the menu and all of a sudden you end up with a fish party rather than a fish fry.

There is definitely something about fried whiting that draws fish lovers from miles around to attend a fish fry. The attraction has a lot to do with the fact that the fish has one long bone down the center and it is light, flakey, and mouth-watering good.

I have discovered through the years that the best skillet to fry any fish, including whiting is a cast iron skillet or a cast iron pot, because in my opinion they hold heat better than other skillets.

When cooking a lot of fish at a fish fry, it doesn’t matter whether it’s whiting or catfish or trout you need a skillet or pot that is going to hold heat to help cook your fish good and fast.

While fried whiting pairs well with most sides, including fresh steamed broccoli, creamy grits and green bean casserole, my favorite way to serve it is with mac n cheese and green beans.
