If you’re like most people, you probably have no idea how much fish you need to fry per person. Well, wonder no more! This blog post will give you the answer, along with some helpful tips on frying fish.
How many people do you want to serve
This will determine how much fish you need to fry. A good rule of thumb is to allow 1/2 pound of fish per person.
What size of fish are you frying
When it comes to fried fish, you need to make sure you have enough for everyone at the table. That being said, how much fried fish do you need per person?
It really depends on the size of the fish. If you are frying smaller fish, like minnows, you will need about 16 per person. If you are frying larger fish, like catfish or trout, you will only need about 8 per person.
So, when deciding how much fish to fry, think about the size of the fish and the amount of people you are serving. A good rule of thumb is to plan on 8-16 small fried fish or 4-8 large fried fish per person.
How much oil do you need to fry the fish
the amount of oil you need to fry your fish will depend on the size and type of fish, as well as the size of your fryer. A general rule of thumb is to use 1/2 cup of oil per 1 lb. of fish. If you’re using a small pan or skillet, you may only need 1/4 cup of oil.
What is the temperature of the oil
The ideal temperature for frying fish is 375 degrees Fahrenheit. If the oil is too hot, the fish will cook too quickly on the outside and not have enough time to finish cooking through. This can result in fish that is burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. If the oil is not hot enough, the fish will absorb too much oil and be greasy.
