Deep Fried Salmon or Trout Fingers ~ Captain Russ’s Favorite!! (Especially good with lake trout)

Salmon/Trout fillets (skinned)

Cooking Oil (peanut oil the best or corn and vegetable oil work well also) enough oil to submerge fillets
Flour (Drake’s/Fry Magic/Shore Lunch or Pancake Mix)

Cut fillets in to ½ to ¾ inch strips.  Pour flour in to paper bag.  Add strips to flour.  May want to salt and pepper fillets before adding to flour.  Shake bag until strips are completely covered with flour.  Put strips in to moderately hot oil and cook until golden brown.  Works well with fry daddy or iron skillet on the grill.
