So I’m not normally a big vanilla-flavored savory-food person, but tonight when I realized I had some cod in the freezer and a couple waffle cones in the bottom of a package that got smashed, an idea emerged. Why not turn the broken ice cream cones into breadcrumbs and use them to make a coating for the fish? Waste not, want not in my house applies beyond utilizing the 5th quarter!
And voila, with a bit of vinagery hot sauce added over the top to cut through the sweetness, a pretty killer dinner ended up on the table.
I made a simple batter and then rolled the battered fish in the crumbs (do season the crumbs with a healthy amount of salt…I definitely had to add salt afterward).
And then the fish got fried in a mix of butter and oil.
