Deep Fry the Filets: Carefully place the battered filets into the hot oil. Fry them for about 3-5 minutes. Or until they turn a beautiful golden brown. Turn them halfway through if necessary. To ensure even cooking.

Drain and Serve: Using a slotted spoon. Remove the filets from the oil. Place them on a plate lined with paper towels. To drain any excess oil. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce. Or a squeeze of lemon.
