Salt Box Seafood Joint in Durham is famous for chef Ricky Moore’s light and crispy fried seafood. Here's his secret formula for the best seafood breading.
Instructions: Whisk together all ingredients in a bag or shallow container. Use the breading to coat small, whole fish like spots and croakers; thin fillets like flounder; and oysters.
If frying shrimp, dunk shrimp in milk and then the breading.
Makes about 4 cups of breading.
