Bearden Farms Breading Mix

Bearden Farms Breading MixIf you're like me, you love to eat fish and wild game. There's nothing like slipping into a nearby river, pulling in a few fish, and then frying or grilling your catch. Pair your catch with the right ingredients and you have a perfect match for a delicious meal.

While I have many favorite fish recipes, I'm always looking for new seasonings to stimulate and tempt my taste buds. Bearden Farms offers seasoned breading mix which you can use for trout, catfish, walleye, chicken, beef, venison, vegetables, or anything else you care to fry, bake, broil, or grill.

I started by thawing and washing several fillets of sea bass. Then I coated each fillet with the breading mix, evenly coating both sides. The fillets were still a little damp, which helped the mix cling to each one. Next, I placed several fillets in to my Presto Deep Fryer at 350 degrees and fried them until they were golden brown.

After the fillets were removed from the oil, I let them cool slightly on paper towels, which also helped to soak up any excess oil. Before serving, I added a few drops of lemon juice for a little extra flavor.

The Bottom Line

The results were gratifying to say the least. Bearden Farms Breading Mix contains the right amount of seasonings and spices, and trust me, you'll want more. If you're looking to try a new dinner recipe, you'll want to give this mix a try. Each package contains 10 ounces for approximately 28 servings.

Pros
  • Great tasting variety of spices and seasonings
  • Easily cooked in a fryer, pan, oven, or on the grill
