 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      Pounds        Fish Fillets; Firm, White
    2      Tablespoons   Lemon juice
    1      Cup           Milk -- or more as needed
    2      Cups          Flour
    3      Cups          Pancake mix
    2      Cups          Club Soda (approx.)
    1      Teaspoon      Basil
    1      Teaspoon      Pepper
      1/2  Teaspoon      Garlic salt
                         Cooking oil
 
 Cut fish fillets in half, making triangular shape. Cover with milk and
 lemon juice and refrigerate 3-4 hours. Drain off milk.  Dip fillets in
 flour to coat each piece lightly. Let dry on a cookie sheet,  making
 sure pieces do not tough. Add oil to deep fryer or heavy pan to a  depth
 of at least 3 inches. Heat oil to 425~. Combine pancake mix, basil,
 pepper, garlic salt and enough soda to make a thick batter, about the
 consistency of buttermilk. Dip floured fillets in batter and add to the
 hot oil one at a time. Fry 4-5 minutes. Remove filets to cookie sheet,
 again,  not letting them touch and keep warm in a 250~ oven. Deep fry
 remaining  filets, keeping the depth of the oil at least 3 inches. NOTE:
 Do not heap fish as this creates steam in the oven and makes coating
 soft.
