Attempted to make some homemade fish and chips for the first time using my new deep fryer. First time using the fryer as well so it was not without hitches.
Made a beer batter. Little did I know that beer batter not only tastes good, but makes a superglue more potent than actual superglue itself. So I put the battered fish into the basket then put the basket in the oil. Once done, removed the basket and was shocked to discover that the fish was bloody welded to the basket! It took bloody half an hour using all manner of scrapers grill brushes and spatulas to remove as much of the gunk as I could. The fact that I was half drunk by this point did not help lol
So, take 2. This time, I put the basket in the oil BEFORE I add the food then give it a quick shake to avoid sticking. Result? Much better! Fried up several batches of crab sticks, scallops and prawns. Have to say, tasted pretty damn good! Scallops especially, had a nice creamy texture.
