What you's What's for Dinner

We had a pretty good menu planned out for the week...the hub and I shopped on Sunday after taking stock of what we had to work with. Wednesday is a busy night in our house; after running kids to and from lacrosse practice, we're not home sometimes until 8:00 so we needed something quick. The plan?
Fried Catfish with a little added kick to the GF breading recipe that we taste tested in our Country Fried Steak. We thought we had some catfish filets...but the catfish thought otherwise.

What you have becomes what you have for dinner!
We had already planned on Chicken Nuggets and Tots for the kids. Did you know...Ore-Ida tots are gluten free along with many of their other products!
We had a crab platter with steak on Sunday and had some crab left over so...we made fried crab nuggets.
Now we always have different GF flours on hand, buy one type once a month and after a while you will too.

Better than fish & chips!
1 Cup Brown Rice Flour
1 Cup Corn Starch
1 Tbsp Baking Soda

2 eggs and 1 egg white
1/2 cup milk
Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in medium bowl.

Coat crab (fish, chicken, get the idea) in the milk/egg mixture then toss in flour mixture to coat.
Fry in hot oil over medium high heat until golden brown.
*Crab is definitely better fried a bit on the crispy side
We added curry powder and cayenne pepper for a little kick, salted the crab after it came out of the oil and squeezed fresh lemon over the top
