Problems Deep Frying Fish?

I was wondering what I am doing wrong. Every time I try to deep fry fish it sinks to the bottom of the pan and when I try to get it out it falls apart.

Your temperature is not hot enough. You can get a oil temp gauge, that specifically tells you how hot for fish and other fried items. This will save your food from getting too oily and more flavorful!

It's very difficult to answer your question without more information as to how you are attempting to do this.

Are you using a store bought deep fryer? If so then you should be able to follow the detailed instructions as to temperature and how much to fry at one time.

If you're using a pan or dutch oven (large heavy pot) then you'll either need a candy or meat thermometer to get the temperature right.

You can also test it with a small chunk of bread but this is not the best way as oil has to be the right temperature or your food will just soak up the oil and taste terrible.
The type of oil also matters so maybe if we knew what recipe you are following we could help more.

Check out the following suggestions to see if you are following your recipe closely. You do not have to use all of the ingredients in the recipes but you do need to follow the frying instructions exactly.

It sounds like you are trying to deep fry your fish in a frying pan with just oil in the pan. This can easily cause the fish to stick to the bottom of the frying pan if you don't have enough oil in the pan or the oil is not hot enough when you first add the fish to the frying pan. Normally if you deep fry fish you will need to make your own batter for the fish and wait until the oil is very hot before adding the fish to the frying pan.

If I want to deep fry fish I have a very small deep fryer that I use that the fish is placed in the basket and the basket is set into the machine. I would use a frying pan that is a no stick frying pan and add a little extra oil to the pan to make sure the fish is floating on the oil and not sitting on the bottom of your frying pan.

Can you share the recipe and exactly what you are doing? How hot is the oil? Deep fry or pan fry? Maybe with more information I can help!
