Fluke Fry


Main Course

Prep Time: 15 MINUTES

Cook Time: 10 MINUTES

Serves: 4


  • 2 fluke fishes, fresh and local
  • 1 cup flour
  • Water, enough to make a batter
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Salt, to taste
  • Chipotle aioli
  • Fresh lemon wedges
  • Chips (French fries or other type of potato side, optional


  • If the fish is whole, clean and filet the fish, keeping the bones for presentation. Otherwise, ensure your fluke filets are ready to go.
  • In mixing bowl, combine flour and water to create a simple batter. Consistency should be such that it coats the back of a spoon but still runs off smoothly.
  • Turn on the XO Power Burner, set it to high heat. Place a deep pot on the burner. Fill it with vegetable oil for frying. Heat oil to around 350°F to 375°F.
  • Dip the fluke filets in the batter, ensuring they are well-coated.
  • Carefully place the battered fluke filets into the hot oil on the XO Power Burner. Fry them until they are golden brown and crispy. This should take about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the filets.
  • Once fried, remove the fluke filets from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil. Season with salt while hot.
  • Serve the crispy fluke with chipotle aioli, fresh lemon wedges and chips on the side. Optionally, use the fish bones for presentation as mentioned in the video.
