Cooking with my Grandparents: Fish Fry

DSC02168

Fried fish, fried okra, hush puppies, tomato grits, and homemade pickles!

For our last dinner in Georgia, I requested a fish fry! I really enjoyed using my Grandpa’s fryer and was able to put it to good use with the fish, okra and hush puppies! My contribution to the meal was homemade quick dill pickles I prepared a couple of days before! One of the most important recipes I wanted to learn was for my Grandma’s tomato grits. It was a staple at any family gathering growing up – and now I can make them too!
