Fried Butterflied Shrimp
These shrimp will knock your socks off! The batter doesn't overcoat the shrimp, which helps it maintain a wonderful flavor! Enjoy!
Burton's Southern Fried Chicken with White Gravy
Breaded buttermilk fried chicken and a pan-drippings gravy with milk or cream. The gravy is great on the chicken, but mash up some potatoes with some butter and cream and bake up some cornbread or biscuits and you have the quintessential southern meal with some northern urban twists.
Crispy Fried Fish
Whip up a regular beer batter, and add a final spicy dry dredge to create a truly crispy dish.
Japanese-Style Deep-Fried Shrimp
Shrimp are seasoned and coated with crispy panko crumbs to make the easiest, tastiest deep-fried shrimp ever!
Fried Soft-Shell Crab
These crabs are fried to a light crisp, and you can eat the whole crab. It is my favorite food.
Chef John's City Chicken
This fascinating pork-on-a-stick recipe is American cuisine in a nutshell. City cooks, who couldn't get chicken, would take scraps from much cheaper, at the time, pork and build something similar to what you see here. Why this represents the true spirit of American food is that long after chicken became cheap and plentiful, people kept making and eating this anyway. Serve with honey mustard.
Oklahoma Indian Tacos
We used to get these at county fairs in Oklahoma when I was growing up! So good! A delicious chili mixture served on top of out-of-this-world fried bread and trimmed with all your favorite taco trimmings, like shredded cheese, lettuce, chopped tomatoes, black olives, and salsa.
The Best Chicken Fried Steak
I received this recipe from a co-worker about 5 years ago. This is by far the best chicken fried steak I've ever had. I've made this numerous times for my picky eater son and my southern-raised better half, as well as other family and friends. I get nothing but rave reviews each time.
I made up this recipe many years ago, because I loved the corn dogs you buy at carnivals but could not find a recipe for them. Great served with mustard.
Chef John's Buttermilk Fried Chicken
I love the tangy tenderization that the buttermilk provides. After the buttermilk soak, dredge the chicken pieces in seasoned flour, and fry them in hot oil until crisp and cooked.
