Default Soggy fried fish

Went to a fish fry where fried fish were put in styrofoam box after cooking...lid on top. Obviously the fish would keep on cooking for a while. Also, steam made them soggy after a while.

How do you handle this situation to stop the fish from getting soggy,yet stay fairly warm for eating

Have everyone eat as it comes out the fryer! Works at my family fish fry gatherings. Have fixings all out and there's always room in the pan for more fish because it's eaten right up!

Winner!


When we do big fish frys we usually have at least two fryers going at once, one for fish and one for fries/hushpuppies.
People load plates as it comes out, hot, fresh and crispy!
Also, don't forget to have a big salt shaker and to salt everything before the grease stops dripping.

You're right, it's the steam and grease. We do big fish fries for the residents at a local nursing home and line the bottom of a shallow cardboard box with paper towels and stand fillets on end, tail up after draining. Stack only one layer high and don't take them out until you're serving and they hold up well. You can throw a few paper towels over the top to keep the flies off if need be.
