LH2 .. sounds like mine but skip the garlic and lemon on cold water fish filets.

my family calls it "flash frying"..

-half stick of butter and half stick of margarine in a skillet
-high heat
-toss 'em in and cover
-turn
-slide onto a plate and add a good dose of salt and pepper


love the fried 'taters on the side with a slice of good buttered bread!

I like a real beer batter too (light beer) but thats second in my book to flash frying.

Flash frying....I'm guessing ya using the cast iron or Dutch Oven skillets?
Butter in first b'4 the skillet gets hot?
I do alot of cooking with those Dutch Ovens but have yet to master the buttering thing.
I gotta ask why half of each butter?
Olive oil vs Veg. oil I can see the differences between them two, Olive can stand higher heating b'4 it starts smoking, Veg. oil burns too fast and spoils the taste.

A little butter in the pan, with some oinions, salt, and pepper. Best done on the Coleman stove, while still in the boat. Also, I like it beer battered, especialy if mixing them up with other types of fish.

I like to put 'em on toothpicks and serve them raw to my wife's bridge club. A bowl full of eyes served that way next to the platter of cheeks and the cooler full of beer gets them women excited evertime. he he he

sorry for missing this Blugillman - Cast iron is fine. Thats what I use up at the cabin but around the house I'll use my nonstick pans just easier day to day clean-up.

as far as the butter goes, yes. I add it before it gets hot - let it melt first. reason I use both is the oil in margarine helps keep things from getting sticky w/o sacraficing the buttery flavor and its a bit better for ya than using a 1/4 pound of straight butter.

As for the oils .. it depends on the type of Olive oil you're using.. I thought some of the lighter grades were similiar in smoke points
