How to Fry Pan Fish
How to cook or fry pan fish.
Place pan fish in a thick bottomed frying pan with heads all one way.
Fill the spaces with smaller fish. When they are fried quite brown
and ready to turn, put a dinner plate over them, drain off the fat;
then invert the pan, and they will be left unbroken on the plate.
Put the lard back into the pan, and when hot slip back the fish.
When the other side is brown, drain, turn on a plate as before,
and slip them on a warm platter, to be sent to the table. Leaving
the heads on and the fish a crispy-brown, in perfect shape, improves
the appearance if not the flavor. Garnish your pan fish with slices of lemon.
