The process by which almost any edible substance is made even better. My personal theory of cooking
states that if a certain food sucks, frying it will almost certainly make it less sucky
. Frying can be applied to almost anything - vegetables
, meats, poultry and seafood, even ice cream
. Fried ice cream
is the best example of this theory. If you fry ice cream, it makes it better, which is amazing, because how could ice cream get any better?
A list of certain foods that are made better by frying:
squid - I've had this prepared many ways, and calimari beats them all, hands down.
ice cream - ice cream with a crunch!
fish - flounder, red snapper, swordfish, etc.
potato - french fries!
onion - fried onions, onion rings
pork - pork rinds, pork skin, etc.
note: "better" in this sense obviously does not have anything to do with healthiness. remember to keep it all in moderation, folks.
