Deep Fried Halibut
For this deep fried halibut, I like to go ahead and remove the skin and bones and then cut my Halibut up
in to serving size pieces.
If you are using a skillet or dutch oven to fry in make to use a thermometer to check the temperature of the oil.
Add just a few piece of Halibut at a time, so you won't cool the oil down.
I use canola oil to fry most of my fish because it is cost effective. If you don't mind spending more
peanut oil is great for frying fish.
