Fried Shark Fillets

Using a meat mallet beat each fillet to tenderize it then cut in half. Lay each piece in the buttermilk. In a separate plate mix flour, bread crumbs and seasoning. Heat oil until hot but not smoking. Let excess buttermilk drain off each piece and coat it with the flour mixture. Fry until golden brown and drain. Yum Yum

Good foggy morning. Here's a recipe I conjured up last night and to say the least we enjoyed it. You can use up your leftover ham from the holidays.
Skillet Cordon Bleu Hillbilly Style
Ingredients :
4 boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into small pieces)
Ham (cut into small cubes)
1 Can each cream of mushroom and cream of chicken
1/2 block Swiss cheese (grated)
1 Bag shredded mozzarella cheese
1 Can sliced mushrooms
1 Bag flat noodles (cooked)
Cook your chicken with a tiny bit of cooking oil until almost done and add your ham. Continue cooking on medium to finish cooking the chicken and heating up the ham. When done, add your mushroom just long enough to heat. Drain your noodles and add the 2 cans of soup to the noodles. Mix real good and add your meat mixture to the pot of noodles. Add your cheese to the mixture and cook on med to medium low to reheat everything and melt the cheese. Salt and pepper to taste. It's done !! Fix some good garlic toast and enjoy πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

This is sooo good. You can also use deer cube steak

Chicken Fried Steak And Gravy
4 (1/2 pound) beef cube steaks
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 egg
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups vegetable shortening for deep frying

GRAVY
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Pound the steaks to about 1/4-inch thickness. Place 2 cups of flour in a shallow bowl. Stir together the baking powder, baking soda, pepper, and salt in a separate shallow bowl; stir in the buttermilk, egg, hot Sauce, and garlic. Dredge each steak first in the flour, then in the batter, and again in the flour. Pat the flour onto the surface of each steak so they are completely coated with dry flour. Heat the shortening in a deep cast-iron skillet to 325 degrees F. Fry the steaks until evenly golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. Place fried steaks on a plate with paper towels to drain. Drainhe fat from the skillet, reserving 1/4 cup of the liquid and as much of the solid remnants as possible.
Return the skillet to medium-low heat with the reserved oil. Whisk the remaining flour into the oil. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to release solids into the gravy. Stir in the milk, raise the heat to medium, and bring the gravy to a simmer, cook until thick, 6 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the gravy over the steaks to serve.
