Tip: Frying fish properly
“Beautiful, freshly caught fish from Lake Neusiedl is a true delicacy. To make the fish crispy on the
outside and tender inside, here are two professional tips. 1. Use water-free fat or oil that can be
heated up to 180 to 190 degrees. 2. Put enough of it in the pan. At least as thick as a finger. Don’t
worry that the fish may absorb too much fat! If the fat is hot enough when the fish is added, an
impenetrable outer layer forms immediately. Only then reduce heat.”
