    crumbed cod with thick cut chips

    seasoned with lemon-pepper seasoning, crumbs mixed with a pepper-based all purpose seasoning

    fried in canola oil

    topped with lemon juice (i didnt have fresh lemons so i sadly had to substitute with bottled stuff, still nice tho) and served with tartare sauce

    first time ive tasted cod and the first time ive also cooked cod; the crumbs (panko) were a little bit soggy despite my best efforts to drain the oil, so ill have to do my research and see if i can find a way to alleviate that problem

    suggestions here are also welcome

    my next venture will be pork schnitzel i believe, got some grapeseed oil for that

    e: believe i may have come across my issue

    ive done some research and apparently the heat of the oil may have been the culprit for my soggy panko. it seems to be a reoccurring theme and im seeing a lot of people suggesting that to be a problem.

    the other thing may have been that i dried it on paper towel and not a rack.

    ill amend these two problems the next time i cook it

    my all time favourite dish is gammon slow cooked in coca cola with black treacle glazed over it. Add in some roasted vegetables and potatoes with a little cranberry sauce on the side, it's out of this world.

    god im so glad i got into cooking

    [​IMG]

    fried chicken w/ thick cut chips and chipotle sauce

    boneless, skinless chicken thigh cut of any excess fat followed by a dredge in egg wash and then a thorough coating of seasoned flour (just a pepper-based all purpose seasoning), it was then shallow fried in a cast iron skillet using canola oil at idfk what temperature i didnt really bother to measure it (if a bit of the flour immediately goldens upon entering, it's ready - remember oil reduces in temperature considerably when the meat enters)

    following that it was cooled on a wire rack for a few minutes and dabbed with paper towel just to rid it of any excess fat

    end result was tender chicken with a crunch on the outside, a bit of a spicy hit from the pepper which was offset nicely by the tanginess of the sauce

    first attempt at fried chicken this way; what do i take away from it, though?

    i could've used corn starch. if i went with equal parts flour and corn starch i'd have probably gotten a bit more crunchiness out of the outside. i'll also use breast meat next time i think. i may also invest in peanut oil rather than canola.

    overall very impressed with my first attempt

    yeah oils like vegetable oil and sunflower oil are all usually pretty good, high in good fats and low in bad fats

    really it's hard to deep fry with the 'wrong' oil; sunflower, grapeseed, vegetable, canola, peanut etc etc all work just fine - it just depends whether or not you want to go the healthier route or if you want a certain taste profile from the oil

    as long as u arent a twit and use something like olive oil

    i legit only use olive oil to season my cast iron now and OCCASIONALLY to sear steak

    but really, seasoning my cast iron is the only thing i'd definitely only use olive oil for - i could use grapeseed for searing given it has a high smoke point

    its a very heavy oil and it can ruin shit if ur not careful

    olive oil is probably better used as a dressing for salads or seafood or something like that; as a cooking oil it's honestly superseded by most other oils

    thats just my opinion though a lot of people swear by and exclusively use olive oil for a lot of things

    Olive Oil is the best oil for most mediterranean foods, if you know how to use it, it enhances everything, unless you don’t know how to control your arm and spill too much. Been using it my whole life, especially in pasta is a must!

    but as a cooking oil nah imo
