Honestly, all of the places around here that do the fish fries use frozen fish. It is not like they are hiding this fact because you can clearly see them making the food. I used to love the fish up there, but in the past few years their prices have increased, while portion size and food quality have decreased. If you want fresh fish I suggest you make it yourself or go to J Fire's.

All fish is frozen served around here it's all about the preperation when it's fried can't fry fish frozen solid it has to be thawed completely may be hard for the VFW to do that since they only serve one day a week....

fried fish sold at local fish frys is bought flash fried and frozen. This means it was fried at a very high temp for about 30 seconds when it was processed. It's partially cooked, this adheres the batter to the fish, and reduces total fry time. The fish is then fried frozen. The same process is used for chicken, onion rings, french fries, almost all fried foods that aren't 'home made'. It's the same everywhere.

If you want fresh fish, grab a pole and hit up a pond or lake. One good outing will supply enough fish for three or four fish frys.

I understand that is it frozen...thaw it out before you fry it! It was really all about the way they treated me..they act like i was trying to rip them off a piece of fish...I just wanted what was comimg to me and wanted it cooked right! I don't think that is asking to much! But..thats ok..I just won't be going back to the VFW for ANYTHING!

I just had a thought:

All these old dudes (and the chicks in Ladies Auxiliary) can get their old uniforms out and they can have a Battle of the VFW Fish Fry's!!!! Sort of a "Civil war reinactment" only the weapons are wire baskets, peanut oil and deep fat fryers!!! Participant cooks and servers get to wear their funny hats while duking it out on the culinary battlefield!!! Pay one price at the gate and sample what each VFW makes then YOU the paying public vote to decide who gets the Golden Deep Fat Fryer Basket!!!! Are you ready to ruuuuuuummmmmbbbbble???!!!!???

I batter my fish and freeze it right after I fillet them. I layer them with wax paper in the freezer and put them in a large zip lock bag. I Throw them from frozen right in the fryer. They turn out perfect every time. This cuts down the prep time, it makes for a little more work while I'm cleaning the fish but well worth it. I always fry within three months of freezing to keep from getting freezer burnt.

Got a pound of cod there last-night it was great. You just obviously have a problem with them. I mean your stupid screen name says it all. Total cheap shot at Bob. I bet your one of those people who only eat McDonald square fish.
