    I've made fish sticks with left over uncooked portions a few times.

    It makes an interesting lunch for me and the kids.

    Traditional ketcup dipping sticks..

    Nothing Gormet about it.

    I'll do it again when the ocassion arises.

    Hey,

    I've tried it. I thought it was ok, but I ate an armadillo once and thought that was ok too. I think that in general, oily fishes tend to be poor frying fish.

    I make a dish every now and then, just as an appetizer though. Take the Tuna, cut it into chunks (about 1" to 1 1/2"). Make sure its chunks, if you cut it into strips, you will overcook it and dry it out. You want it juicy inside. Marinate the chunks in soy sauce, sake, and fresh ground ginger root. After a few hours, pat them dry with papertowel, then lightly coat them in soft-as-silk flour, and deep fry them. Put them out on a plate over sliced Daikon or cabbage and drizzle it with a hot Thai Chili sauce.

    I know it sounds like a lot, but its not hard. That is the only way I have ever had deep fried Tuna that was any good. I certainly would not beer batter it....

    It is also very good fried in a tempura batter and then dipped in a creamy jalapeno sauce. My friends always request some tuna like this when we have a fish fry.

    Blackfin fried in Mortons fish and chips batter is freakin' awesome. Took some to deer camp last year and the guys stuffed themselves on it. I have also taken blackfin and boiled it and made tuna salad out of it, its real good.
    Yellowfin though is a different matter, raw or sizzled on both sides for 1 minute each for me, just my 2 cents.

    That sounds more like it. I absolutely love fried fish but have pretty much cut fried foods out of my diet.:( I do make an exception for fried fish and shrimp occasionally.:D

    I'm taking that this was a deep fish fryer of the usual variety? When you say golden brown, did it float or did you just go by color?

    It sounds like something I'd like to try. Thanks....
