i use panko flower and Tony Thatchers Cajun seasoning & garlic. On gator.


Now i thinking about trying some diced- jalapenos mixed into a batch. I use the Tony's Cajun, jalapenos, garlic, onions, olive oil and butter when i make shrimp. There hot and good.

Most commercial seasonings have MSG.
Mix your own for a custom blend that you can call your own.
Try adding some corn starch to the flour/seasoning mix.
The trick is season-dry-wet-dry. Start dry and end dry with an egg or butter milk wash in between.
Let the coating stay on for several hours in the fridge so it sticks to the meat.
Rice flour is real thin a make for a light coating.

Happy frying.

If your looking for something right out of the box, Zatarain's or Louisiana Fish Fry Products is hard to beat!!!

But I'm with GladesCat on this one. Make your own and to your own taste. I like to make my Oyster breader with corn meal for a bit of a "grittier" texture, some cayenne pepper, garlic powder, parsley, and a bit more of this n that.... and if you dont already have one of those two piece tupperware fish breader bowls, ya' gotta get one of those. Man, they are the ticket!!!

Good Luck.. Let us know what you come up with!

google a recipe for Emeril's cajun seasoning (aka Bayou Blast) and make it yourself and then you can add all the heat you want. Just remember though that you can never remove to much heat. Oh and when I make it I leave out the salt. You can always add some later if you want but it's healthier w/out it or at least less of it. Good luck and good eats!

My two cents ...... I think a big part of the secret is what you do with the meat before you move to the breading.
For specks for example I whisk up 2 eggs in a bottle of beer, soak the filets in that for at least an hour (two is better) and then roll em in the breading and pop 'em in the grease. I use the Public's mixed with Zatarains because I don't eat stuff as 'hot' as some of y'all, but there's always Cholula on the table if ya' need a little more heat when they're done.

Jar O' Death Pepper Shaker:

Alright. Either go to Saint Augustine to get some or grow your own datil peppers. Don't bother with the canned sissy Datils, get the real hot, fresh ones.

1. Get 32 oz of datil peppers
2. Remove stalks.
3. Dry in a dehydrator (or oven - jerky dry out style on sticks) until all moisture is gone (usually 12 hours). Test pepper by cutting one open.The thing should be so dry it almost crumbles. You have to get it just right. If you don't have the time or equipment to dehydrate - sun drying works just as well, but may take a while longer.
3. Pulverize peppers in a plastic bag - seeds and all - until you get fine powder/flakes and seeds
4. For every dried and pulverized 32 oz. of datil peppers I usually add 4 tablespoons of ground pepper, just to cut the heat a little. But hey if you ain't scared, skip this step. You can also just dry the seeds themselves and dry/pulverize those if you are crazy.
5. Put everything into a mason jar with holes punched in the lid, an old pepper shaker, or an old seasoning container with the bigger holes in the top.

Don't let your kids get near this stuff... they'll be sorry.

A little goes a long way. Be careful.

I like to sprinkle my jerky with it, mix it in with sausage, and put it on fried eggs for breakfeast.

It'll let you know. :wink:

I guess in that case I'd put a little in your breadin or wait until it's fried and then sprinkle it. May not be what you were lookin for, but you said spicy, so I thought I'd share it.

I got in the dog house one time when I ground dried datils in the kitchen with a food processor. Everybody had to leave the house for awhile :)
