    PRO TIPS

    Best Fish to Fry

    The best fish for frying tends to be lean and neutrally flavored, like catfish. (Oysters and peeled shrimp work great, too, of course!) Heartier fish like tuna and snapper are best for grilling or pan-searing.

    Seafood Temperatures

    Keep all seafood below 40 degrees, in the coldest part of your refrigerator, for one or two days at most. Exceptions include live oysters, which can keep up to a week if stored cupped side down, wrapped in damp towels or newspapers. Live crawfish should be cooked on the day they’re purchased.
