A Fishy Meal

     In this meal, you will be fixing fish, hush puppies and salad.
     How to fix fish: 
     Take 2 pounds of frozen fish filets (will be about 5 fish filets--you can increase the amount in accordance to the size of your family/friends) [whiting, catfish/swai or red snapper] and wash each filet. Then soak in a platter of milk (about 3 cups milk) for half an hour. Note: Soaking fish in milk is optional. Soaking it in milk takes some of the fishy taste away.
     Mix a breading of one cup corn meal, one cup corn flour, 1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning, Lawry's seasoning, or another season-all type spice, and 1 teaspoon lemon pepper. 
     In a separate bowl, place three beaten eggs
     After you are finished soaking the fish in milk, dip in the egg. Then bread thoroughly on both sides with corn meal mixture. 
     In a non-stick fryer or a cast iron skillet heat 1 cup oil. When oil sizzles when you flick breading into it, it is time to begin frying the fish. Place fish in skillet and fry on each side until breading is crispy and golden brown, and fish is flaky when tested with fork.
     How to fix Hush Puppies:
     In a medium-size bowl, mix together:
~3 cups fine, sifted corn meal
~ 1-2 cups buttermilk or regular milk
~2 eggs
~1 teaspoon salt
~1 minced onion
~3 tablespoons white sugar

Mix all of these together. Heat in a cast-iron skillet 1 1/2 cups corn oil until very hot. Place batter by tablespoon into hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side and is not batter-y.

For the salad:
 -Large bowl rubbed with garlic
--2 carrots, peeled and grated
--1-2 heads lettuce of your choice, washed and shredded
---1 small stalk celery, minced
--1/2 onion, minced
--1/8 leek, minced
--broccoli washed and in very small pieces
--1-2 fresh tomatoes, washed and minced
--juice of one lemon, sprinkled over the top before serving

 Allergen information: This recipe contains egg, milk and corn ingredients. 
To replace egg, use 1 tablespoon of applesauce in place of one egg, mixing with the applesauce 1 tablespoon baking powder and 1 tablespoon oil.
