    1. The secret to good fried seafood is the temperature, in that you fry, 350 degrees is ideal. But the main cause of greasy fried food is not letting the oil return to the temperature of 350 degrees before you drop the next batch. A simple kitchen tool, a frying thermometer can alleviate this problem. Another tip is to always shake off any excess fish fry of whatever you are frying, before you place it in the grease. This will prevent the excess from floating to the bottom of the pan and burning.
    2. 1. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Store any leftovers in a glass container under refrigeration.

    5. 2. Heat oil to 350 degrees on deep fat fry thermometer.
    6. 3. Make batter for seafood by beating Large eggs, buttermilk, lowfat milk and Cajun or possibly Creole Seasoning together till combined.
    7. 4. Dredge seafood piece by piece in fish fry till coated. Dip into batter and back into fish fry. Dredge till completely coated.
    8. 5. Fry seafood separately because they each have different cooking times.
