whatscookinwednesday It’s summer.  I hope you’ve been able to go fishing!

What could be better than fresh-caught fish, sizzling over an open fire?  The next best thing would probably be that same fresh-caught fish sizzling over your kitchen stove.

It’s the batter that “makes” the fish fillet, and our batter is the BEST!  It’s also quite unique; I bet y’all have never used batter like this.  Once your family tastes it, you’ll never make any other kind.


1 pound fish fillets, whatever kind your family likes best.  Be sure the fillets are completely thawed.

2 cups pancake mix (Not baking mix – PANCAKE mix)

1/4 teaspoon pepper

5-ounce jar of any Texas Pepper Jelly – alternate until you’ve tried them all!

Oil for frying

What to do:

Put the pepper jelly in a shallow bowl; put the fillets in there and let them stand for about fifteen minutes.  Be sure the fillets are covered with pepper jelly.

One at a time, remove the fillets from the bowl of pepper jelly and coat with pancake mix.  Sprinkle with pepper.

In a large deep skillet, heat about a quarter inch of oil and fry the fish for just 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes with a fork.  Drain thoroughly.

The pepper jelly will give your fish fillets a flavor like none  other – absolutely delicious!

(After you’ve marinated all the fish, discard the pepper jelly.)
