The Perfect Fish Fry

It wouldn’t be a true Rockport vacation without having a classic fish fry! Head inside after a day full of fishing and put those keeper fish to good use. The whole family will enjoy the crispy golden batter and flaky fish. This recipe can be paired with a number of sides. Our favorite sides include grilled corn, fries, coleslaw, salad, and chips. 


For the Frying:

  • Your best catch (trout, red fish, and black drum are all great)

  • Louisiana Seasoned Fish Fry

  • Canola Oil

For the Sauce:

  • Ketchup

  • Horseradish

  • Lime

  • Salt

  • Pepper

  • Garlic Powder


  1. In a large bowl batter each side of the fish fillets with the Louisiana Seasoned Fish Fry

  2. In a large skillet heat 2 inches of canola oil over medium high heat. Carefully place coated fish into the hot oil and fry about 5 minutes on each side until medium golden brown. 

  3. Once fish is fried evenly, remove from the pan and drain on a stack of paper towels on a plate. 

For the Sauce:

  1. In a medium bowl mix ketchup and horseradish (the more horseradish the spicier)

  2. Add a couple limes and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
