The Easy Deep Fried Sole is one of the easiest ways to cook fish. It’s quick and quite yummy.
When I am deep frying anything, I usually use vegetable/corn/or peanut oil. You could actually substitute the fish for any meat or vegetable with this recipe. You could use pork, chicken, tofu, eggplant etc.
