Easiest fish batter on earth

A friend who is an avid fisherman sometimes gifts us with a little mess of fish (already cleaned even!). This way of getting fish is even easier than Sesame Street's puppet Ernie in the fishing boat yelling "Here, Fishy, Fishy, Fishy!" and having 'em jump in the boat!
   My all-time favorite batter for fried fish is soo easy:
  1. Dip boneless fish fillets in Frank's Red Hot Pepper Sauce or Louisiana Hot Sauce, then 
  2. Dredge in stone ground cornmeal (pic at right)
   That's it! Well, except for the frying! The super crispy fried fish will be slightly tangy, somewhat spicy...simply delicious.
   By the way, Hubby fried these up for us and used paper towels to soak up the grease. I'd have used newspaper instead...just like the English do when serving their famous Fish 'n' Chips.

   On another note, America has lost our golden girl, the iconic beauty, beloved two-time Oscar winner Elizabeth Taylor. Her efforts as an AIDS activist prove this Hollywood legend's beauty ran more than skin deep. My favorite quote of hers was given in response to a question about her having been married EIGHT times:

"I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?"
                                                  Elizabeth Taylor

They don't make 'em like that anymore!

Got to try that, it looks delicious.
No more newspaper wrapped fish and chips for us sadly, it has long since been banned.
