Q: what are some recipes for frying pans?
i just got my frying pan out and have been wanting to cook on it for years. today i put it on the stove…and i realized I DONT KNOW ANY RECIPES! could you guys please give me names of food that i can cook on it?

A: start with something easy, like scrambled eggs.

Q: What are other ways of making healthy Tofu recipes without frying it? Simple recipes please?
Something that would work great on a diet.

A: This website has great ideas. I love using tofu in stir-fries…check out the “main dishes” link on the page. Hope this is helpful…enjoy :)

Q: I am looking for recipes for whiting (frying) and green squash? Thanks in advance for your help.?
I have whiting frying for the kids, baking for me with green squash and red mashed potatoes.

Thank you.
Well, I would like to prepare it differently… thanks but I am looking for recipes not wise ass remarks

A: Sounds like you already have it planned.

Was not intended to be wise at all.

Why not take the green squash and cook it in some butter with sweet onion.

You can add anything you think the kids would like to those mashed potatoes. Maybe English Peas?

For the whiting, beat eggs and add hot sauce to the egg wash. Just dip the fish in it before adding it to the flour. I have also found that when I use mustard in the egg wash as well the flour adheres better and fries up to a beautiful golden brown. The hot sauce and mustard add a distinctively good taste to the fish and chicken when you fry.

Was that better.

After all you already had the whiting frying and had green squash and mashed potatoes.

And I hate long drawn out recipes. I am one to keep it simple and good at the same time. When you have to follow a recipe that is half a page long you tend to take the joy out of what you are doing.

Try the hot sauce and mustard in the egg wash for dipping the fish. Don’t use corn meal, use flour.

Q: Where can I find recipes that do not involve frying?
I am only just learning to cook and I HATE frying food. Really really hate it!! Is there a recipe book out there with meals that do not require the food to be fried?

My fella is an excellent cook and can do lovely meals but it isn’t fair for him to cook every night. We both work and I would love to surprise him with some nice meals

A: a site with lots of recipes/tips on oven fried foods;

Or, you can just type in no fry foods on Google, there’s bunches of them.

Q: I need rice stick recipes that do not involve frying.?
I just found out I am allergic to gluten, wheat and several “alternative”grains. The only recipes I can find for rice sticks involve frying and I can’t do that. The package does not have any directions and I would love to learn to cook this. Are rice sticks and chinese noodles the same thing?
Any help/advice is appreciated.

A: Well, you could boil the rice noodles, and eat them cold with a variety of pickled vegetables, grilled meats, or seafood. Vietnamese restaurants offer this kind of dish, it’s pretty good.

Or you could make soup.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 4 servings

1/2 cup minced ginger
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1 tablespoon cracked black pepper
1/2 pound very fresh, sushi-grade ahi tuna

Q: Can someone suggest some tasty microwave dishes? Recipes should need only microwave and not frying etc?
Please suggest some dishes which can be made with microwave only and should not involve other things like frying etc which may require other things apart from microwave to cook. For example it’s not possible for me to fry something on gas or some other form of cooking.
preferably some indian dishes like gravy etc


Q: Frying chicken in a deep fryer recipes??
I am going to use a deep fryer for some boneless chicken breasts and some “drumsticks” – I really have no idea how to concoct a batter/breading…any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks

A: This can be made in a deep fryer. If frying fish, pancake batter works well.

Cajun Fried Chicken

4-5 boneless chicken breasts, boneless pork chops, or any chicken with bone in
1 cup of self-rising flour, unsifted
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1tbs Dijon mustard
1/3 cup Tabasco
¼ cup water
1 – 1 ½ cups oil, for frying

Combine cayenne pepper, mustard, Tabasco, and water in plastic container or gallon size zip lock bag. If you pierce chicken with a fork first it will be a lot spicier (don’t do this unless you like it HOT!). Place chicken in marinade, turning to coat well. Marinate for no more than 1 hour, turning frequently.

Combine self-rising flour and garlic salt in a plastic bag or container. Add chicken to coat, one at a time is best. I use tongs so my hands don’t get messy.

Heat vegetable oil in large skillet on medium high heat.

Fry chicken pieces, turning once, for about 15-20 minutes total. Remove from pan immediately and keep warm. If you use regular pieces of chicken, with bone in, cook for at least 30-45 minutes, or until done.

Serving Suggestions:
Garlic flavored pasta or garlic mashed potatoes and green beans or broccoli.

Q: Can you put raw meat in a slow cooker? Heaps of recipes say to brown the meat first in a frying pan. Why?
I thought the idea of a slow cooker was just to throw it all in and turn it on. Seemingly a lot of recipes require meats, onions etc to be cooked first? Why would this be so, what’s the difference?

A: All meat that goes in the slow cooker is raw. It gets cooked *in* the slow cooker. The browning is for flavour and colour, nothing else.

I generally brown any meat I put in, but when in a hurry I have just put it direct in the slow cooker and it’s come out great either way.

Enjoy it – meat cooked in a slow cooker is soooo delish!

Q: What are some good recipes using ramen noodles for stir frying?
My friend said these can be pretty tasty. Suggestions?

A: 2 pkgs. Ramen noodles
The meat off 4 pieces of chicken (cooked or raw), shredded (about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 c.).
1 c. mushrooms, sliced thickly
2 c. of other vegetables (broccoli, carrot, etc.)
8 tbsp. soy sauce and seasonings from Ramen noodle pkg.

Boil 1 cup water for the Ramen noodles. Put noodles in, turn off heat and cover. (If you have a microwave, put noodles and water together in a covered container and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes on High.)

Take chicken, soy sauce and seasonings and mix together in bowl, then set aside to soak.

Get a skillet or Wok heated up – BEFORE putting the oil in! This is important in that it keeps the oil from burning. Test how hot the pan is by putting one to two drops of water; it if sizzles away immediately, it’s hot enough.

Put in about 1 tablespoon oil – just enough to cover the pan (or Wok) bottom and sides. Peanut oil is traditionally used, and is low in cholesterol, but other oils will work, including olive and corn oil (also low in cholesterol).

Put chicken and soy sauce mixture in pan, along with the carrots, and stir constantly. After a minute or so, add broccoli, then mushrooms, stirring all the while. Five minutes and everything should be cooked quite nicely.


Sm. pkg. chicken breast fillets
Fish sauce
Soy sauce
6 pkg. Ramen noodles
1 big tomato
2 to 3 lg. cloves garlic
1 big white onion
3 sm. hot chili peppers
1/4 lb. fresh snow peas
Half bunch broccoli
1 pkg. fresh mushrooms
1 bunch coriander

Marinate chicken sliced in strips in small amount of fish and soy sauce with 1 chopped garlic clove and 1 chopped pepper and half a bag of coriander leaves (chopped). Chop tomato, onion, mushrooms, broccoli, rest of the garlic. Stir fry the garlic, the rest of the little chilies (minced) and onion in oil, then add other vegetables and saute – stir fry until cooked but not soft.
In another skillet quickly stir fry the chicken drained of the sauces. Cook until done. Mix in with its juices to the vegetables. Set aside. Bring large cook pot of water to rapid boil. Add the 6 packs of Oriental noodles. Bring back to boil for only 1 minute. Immediately drain and toss with the vegetables. Sprinkle garlic salt or noodle seasoning packets on to taste. Serve while hot. Serves 4 to 6.

Q: Frying Fish – Best Batter? Recipes?
Tonight I’ve got a massive craving to satisfy: Fried fish. Probably Haddock.

Here is my question: I have always just beaten an egg, dipped the fish in the egg, then dipped it into some flour to create a batter.

I’ve been reading various recipes that include things like: Corn Meal, Salt, Sugar, et al.

Please do not copy/paste recipes.. I am looking for experienced fish fryers!

What’s the best way for me to make delish fried fish?

A: Ok Start with the egg wash.

Then in a bowl mix 1 packet of jiffy corn bread mix, 1/2 cup of flower, 2 tbsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of black pepper, 2 tsp of salt. Stir that up well so that all the different parts blend.

Then do the same thing you did before with your own flour.
Dip the fish in the egg and then place it in the mixture covering both sides. Do NOT put it in a bag and shake it up. You will probobly want to use a fork and thickly coat each side of the fish.

If you find it is having trouble sticking – add a little water the mixture to make it kind of like a paste.

I like to double dip them in the egg and mixture – it makes the crusty part nice and thick.

This works great for like a catfish or trout – not to well with like a salmon for example.

Q: What is the secret to a great Vietnamese stir-fry/recipes?
Hi, I absolutely LOVE the stir-frys I get at my local Vietnamese restaurant, they are very light and just perfectly done. I was wondering if anyone had favorite recipes and also tips on how to cook Vietnamese-style? It seems much lighter to me than the Chinese food on which I was raised- and love! :-D Thanks!

A: Vietnamese cuisine tends to be on the sweeter side when doing stir frys. Light it is, because they use splash of fish sauce, interchange with light unsalted soybean paste (not, instead of the heavy use of soy sauce/soy sauce/other brown sauce in Chinese cuisine.
