Fried whiting fish is a fried fish fillet recipe that requires the fish to be dipped in a simple batter before being deep fried. Whiting is a type of fish that is common in the Atlantic. Aside from whiting, this recipe can be used for haddock, pollock, tilapia, and other types of medium to large sized fish.
There are many ways to enjoy fried whiting or any batter fried fish. This can be eaten with a side of fries or potato chips. I personally like to eat this with rice and ketchup. This also goes well with veggies such as braised collard greens.
Sometimes it is nice to get out of your comfort zone and try to eat your usual food differently. For example, fried battered whiting can make a good fish taco. It can even eaten for lunch as a fish sandwich.
