Fried broccoli? Yep!
One thing I love to do when I have the
time is experiment in the kitchen.
Alot of yummy and a
few not-so-yummy things have
emerged when I do these experiments.
Sunday I was frying some huge
fresh catfish filets that I had just
that I had some extra flour left over
from when I had coated the
fish to fry.
I love steamed broccoli and had thrown a
bag in the microwave...the kind
that just takes 5 minutes
and comes out perfect.
My creative wheels were all greased up
from having the day off, and I thought...
hmmmm...why not fry some broccoli.
I took the flour and added an egg, some
milk, season salt and Cavendar's
Greek seasoning to make a batter about the
consistency of pancake batter.
I actually tried the frying process 2 ways.
I had butter in one skillet and oil in the other.
Although both turned out good, I would
probably use a combination next
time because the butter
seemed to add a little flavor but the
oil seemed to cook better.
I didn't use alot of either, just enough to
have a little in the bottom of the pan.
I didn't want to deep fry. Less oil at least
To make them,
I simply dipped some of the larger
pieces of steamed broccoli into the batter
and cooked them in the oil/butter over
medium heat until nice and golden brown
on both sides.
When they were done, I put them on a
paper plate to drain off the excess grease
and topped them with a little grated
sharp cheddar cheese.
Love what you eat and eat what you love! :)
