I was deep frying some fish for tacos, using the flour-liquid-more flour dipping technique. I used the very same recipe I have used for chicken in the past without incident. However, this time I added coconut oil to the fat, hoping for a little hint of flavor from it.
All was going well, I was washing my hands, when I heard a strange sound. I looked over my shoulder to see an absolute volcano of foam coming out of the pot I was frying in. Just froth everywhere.
Anyone ever had this happen? Any ideas? Was it the coconut oil addition? I fry fish for tacos in it all the time, just fish-just coconut oil, but this was the first time I'd coated and deep fried fish with it mixed with other oils.
