Deep-Fried Twinkies

Deep-Fried Twinkies

Ingredients

6 Twinkies
Popsicle sticks
4 cups vegetable oil
Flour for dusting
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 Tablespoon oil
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

1. Chill or freeze Twinkies for several hours or overnight.

2. Heat 4 cups vegetable oil in deep fryer to about 375 degrees.

3. Mix together milk, vinegar and oil.

4. In another bowl, blend flour, baking powder and salt.

5. Whisk wet ingredients into dry and continue mixing until smooth. Refrigerate while oil heats.

6. Push stick into Twinkie lengthwise, leaving about 2 inches to use as a handle, dust with flour and dip into the batter. Rotate Twinkie until batter covers entire cake.

7. Place carefully in hot oil. The Twinkie will float, so hold it under with a utensil to ensure even browning. It should turn golden in 3 to 4 minutes. Depending on the size of your deep fryer, you might be able to fry only one at a time, two at the most.

8. Remove Twinkie to paper towel and let drain. Remove stick and allow Twinkie to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

Deep-Fried Squid

Deep-Fried Squid

3 lb Squid, cleaned and cut into
-rings
Flour for coating, at least
-3 cups
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for deep frying. Peanut
-oil is best.

Deep-fried squid is one of the most popular seafood dishes in the
world. It is made in almost every country where squid is eaten. Once
you taste it, you'll see why. The rings emerge juicy, sweet and
crisp.

Served with several dipping sauces, this dish makes an excellent hors
d'oeuvre or main course. This recipe calls for a dry coating. Wet
coatings, such as tempura batter, are delicious, too, though they are
a little more trouble to apply.

Dry the rings thoroughly with paper towels. Coat with flour, to
which salt and pepper have been added.

Heat oil to 350F in a deep-fat fryer or heavy casserole. If you
don't have a temperature control or thermometer, you can guess at the
temperature by dropping a few drops of water into the oil. It should
sizzle immediately on contact. Plunge basket laden with one layer of
squid into oil which should bubble vigorously on contact. If you
don't have a basket for deep frying, use a large spoon or tongs to
immerse squid in oil, and to remove. Fry until coating turns golden
brown, about 3 or 4 minutes.

Remove squid and drain. Turn down heat to moderate until just before
you are ready to cook the next batch; oil will overheat when the
fryer is empty. Remove excess oil from squid with paper towels.

Serve rings hot with any of the dipping sauces described below or with
lemon wedges. Cole slaw is a natural with deep fried squid.

4 Water chestnuts
-OR
1/2 md Onion
Salt
Pepper
1 Egg, beaten
2 tb Corn starch
Oil for deep frying

fine cubes. Place cubes in shrimp mixture. Add salt, pepper, egg and 2
tablespoons corn starch to mixture. Combine thoroughly.

2. Fill deep fyer halfway up with oil. Heat oil on highest heat setting. When you think oil is sufficiently heated, test the temperature of it with a small piece of bread crust. If it frys to a golden brown colour, then oil is ready for deep frying. If bread crust fails to brown readily, then oil is not ready yet. If bread crust frys to a dark brown, then oil is too hot. Shut heat off of wok, allow oil to cool 5 minutes before turning heat on again. Retest oil with bread crust to see if it is of proper temperature.

3. When oil is ready for deep frying, take 2 teaspoons, dip into shrimp mixture and form a 1" diameter ball. Drop ball into hot oil, Place about 8 balls into the hot oil. Allow each ball to deep fry 3 minutes. Turn balls so that each will fry to a golden brown colour. Remove balls to paper toweling to drain excess oil from them.
