    At the gun club on trap league we all chipped in and bought a grill and alternate nights on who brings food. We have a guy and his wife that go to Algoma, Wi every weekend and catch their limit of salmon each day.
    The other night, they brought a turkey fryer and pan after pan of salmon chunks, dipped in egg wash then rolled in cracker crumbs.
    Being a chef, I was a little more than skeptical, having never even considerded deep frying salmon.
    Let me tell you, it is without a doubt one of the best ways to cook it. I was blown away.
    Try it sometime, you'll be amazed!

    Wow, real Salmon... It's so expensive here I never bought it...

    Egg-wash and cracker crumbs...
    Any special seasoning or sauce (remoulade) used?

    Fried just in flour, I bet the fatty Salmon would soggy up the crust,
    but the coarser cracker crumbs make a lil' more sense...

    If the oil is hot enough the fish just crusts up and floats when done, most excellent.

    ive had it twice, once in alaska fish and chips style and once in hong kong deep fried and then stir fried with a black bean sauce. they were both excellent. actually anything deep fried is mighty tastey to me.

    No seasoning at all, just a buttery cracky like a Ritz. We did sprinkle with Lowry's when done.

    I agree with what was also said- anything deep fried I'd eat.

    I'm gonna have to try this... it sounds delicious. Of course most fried things are.

    How big 'a chunk of salmon are we talkin' here?

    :drool:

    Chicken nugget-size is about right.
