Suggested Pairing: ” This dish screams for your favorite cold Microbrew!”

Here’s What You Will Need:

1 package Superior Select VSP Cod
1 quart of fryer shortening
1 cup of flour
1 cup of finely crushed pretzels … this is best achieved by grinding in a blender until a fine meal
3 eggs
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 Tablespoon Mayo
Juice of 1 lemon

Here’s How You Do It:

Heat shortening in a deep fat fryer to 350 degrees
Remove cod from package, pat dry and season with salt and pepper
Whisk eggs and place in a medium-sized shallow bowl
Add flour and pretzels to their own medium-sized shallow bowl also
Once the oil is heated, dredge fish in flour and shake off access
Coat evenly in the eggs and then press pretzel coating into fish evenly
Once the oil is up to temp place carefully in the fryer and cooks until fish floats and flakes easily, approximately 8-10 minutes
While fish is cooking, mix together mustard, mayo, and lemon juice
Remove cooked fish from the fryer, drain off excess oil and serve with the “mustard-naise”
