    It's a bit of work, but wow, fresh Snapper, never frozen (like it is in most Thai restaurants) fried whole, is really hard to beat...

    By the way, I now use a gas fryer outside to keep the "fried fish" smell out of the kitchen, a worthy investment...

    I forgot to score the sides of the fish in the picture above, and it definitely wasn't as flaky...

    I highly recommend if you're going to do this often, buy and outdoor fryer.... Also, peanut oil REALLY makes a difference...

    One last comment... I use a thermometer and get the temp up to 375 before I put the fish in, as the temp quickly settles into the desired 350 degrees...

    Looks great, I'll have to try it. What kind of fryer do you have?

    Probably a "Skipper" fryer................................

    Something like this, but a little nicer, I'll look when I'm back at home and PM you... Skipper loves the dish, but hates the mess and the lingering smell when done inside... AND, the hood over the stove is a mess and needs a thorough cleaning every time, so this eliminates all that....
