Frying and Sauteeing Foods

Frying food is cooking in hot fat or oil until it is browned on all sides and cooked through. Frying is usually done in a shallow skillet. Sauteing is a dry heat cooking method. The pan is very hot with just a small amount of oil or fat, and the food cooks or browns quickly.

Can you reuse oil after frying shrimp?

You can reuse oil after frying anything, but its generally not recommended. You should try to use oil only once, if you can. Reheating oil actually causes it to release toxins, they're not good for you, so you should try to avoid this if you can.

Ans 2 - You can re-use oil adequately if it hasn't been burned. I generally put my oil through a paper coffee filter after each use. This will give you 7-10 more uses before it's useless.

Why mix butter with oil for frying?

If you are lucky enough to have access to, or know how to make, clarified butter, this isn't necessary, because the clarification process removes the milk solids in the butter. Otherwise, you mix the two because the oil helps keep the butter from browning too soon. Regular unclarified butter will brown because it contains milk solids that brown, the oil helps prevent that.

Frying Pans

Why does butter help un-stick food from a frying pan?

its because butter is oily and oil is slippery. The oil from the butter goes on the frying pan and it makes the pan slippery so nothing sticks.

Butter contains moisture, the moisture helps dissolve the stuck on portion of food, (sugars usually), water works better at removing burnt on foods, but butter generally won't alter food you intend to eat afterwards.

What is double-frying?

Double frying is sometimes call par-fried. It is simply this: fry your dish (french fries, egg rolls, fish, etc.) for 2-3 minutes at about 325 degrees. They outside should be light golden, but not more. The food, such as french fries, will actually be a bit limp. Take the food out onto paper towels to drain away the excess oil. Let the food cool. Then raise the oil temperature to 375. Put the food back into the oil for 3-4 minutes, or until it is as done as you want it to be.

This process insures that the inside will be well cooked and the outside not burned. It will also result in much more crispy foods. Larger foods, such as egg rolls may actually be fried 3 times. Many restaurants par-cook the food well before serving time and refrigerate (or even freeze). Then they do the 2nd frying at serving time. This is how fast food restaurants generally do the french fries we all love.

How do you clean off burnt vegetable oil off the outside of pots and frying pans?

There is a can of powder cleaner I buy in the grocery store called "Bar Keepers Helper" that works wonders on this. Use with some sort of scrubbie and you can polish burned oil right off.

To that good answer we add this: Work outside if possible. Use lots of newspaper. Wear eye protection and gloves. Be careful. (The "standard" cautionary offerings.) Oven cleaner will strip paint off of things, but it will not strip enamel off of vessels. The enamel is effectively a ceramic (it has been fired on), and, as such, is impervious to the sodium hydroxide in oven cleaner.

If the frying pans are cast iron, put them over a hot fire on your barbeque grill, leave till the crust that has formed burns off. After they cool, wash, dry thoroughly, then re-season by applying a small amount of cooking oil to the inside of the skillet, and place in a warm (225-250 degree) oven for about thirty minutes.

Here is another option I would like to add that I found worked great, and it is environmentally safe plus no soaps or abrasive steel wool. If you have access to wood ashes straight from the fireplace, they work great to clean almost anything. I was despairing about my heavy aluminum frying pan, but with a paste of ashes and scant water and a nylon scrubbie and a lot of elbow grease, I was smiling at the result!

Does fried chicken make you fat?

It depends an how you fry the chicken. If you use the deep frying method with a whole chicken, the oil from the fat does not significantly penetrate the chicken. Actually, the heat from the oil tends to seal-in the natural juices of the chicken. It is not necessarily a fattening result.

Grilling is healthier because u do not put it in fattening oil or baked comes with the extra skin which is also unhealthy so grilling is healthier because no oil no extra skin and just burnt on a grill hence grilling.
