fried flounder

I think I'm the only person in the world who likes Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives.  He finds some of the best from-scratch diner food ever.  Columbus has some supreme eats, but there are still too many bars serving expensive shit bar food, more locals should watch this show.

The only problem is the preps fly by too fast to take notes, but the other night I snagged a simple one: beer batter.  1 x 12 oz beer (I used Bud), 1C of flour and 2T salt and mix.  Coat the fish with a dusting of flour, dip in the batter,  let excess drain and pop it in the fryer.  I used peanut oil at about 375.  Really crisp and the coating was not too thick, a really nice save for some mediocre frozen fish.

And for some good local fried fish, catch @jarsloth's review today on Marino's in Grandview!

Here via Rachel's blog. I do a good bit of BBQ myself and your blog title caught my eye.

I actually like watching DDD, I think it is just popular to hate on Guy these days. To me, the show isn't about him, its about the places and people he shows. Like you, I have picked up the quick tips here and there from DDD.

Keep up the good work and have a good week!

Hi Chris, Thanks for stopping by and the kind words. Yes, my late night guilty pleasure is triple D. He is a goof, but you're right, the emphasis is on the food, all from scratch. I have to start watching with a pen and paper at the ready.
