How to Deep-Fry Frozen Foods
Deep-frying is a quick, efficient method for cooking frozen foods, such as French fries, fish sticks and chicken nuggets. It ensures the inner parts of the food reach the appropriate temperatures and browns the outside to crispness.
1 Pour cooking oil into your pan or deep-fryer.
2 Heat the cooking oil to 350 or 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
3 Do not thaw or defrost the frozen food. Shake any excess ice from the frozen food. Alternatively, lay the food out on a paper towel and blot to get rid of ice.
4 Place the frozen food into the hot oil. The oil may bubble and pop out of the fryer, so use caution. Additionally, fry only moderate amounts of frozen food at a time. Too much cold can lower the temperature of the oil and foods won't cook properly.
5 Allow the food to deep-fry until thoroughly cooked according to the suggested time. • 6Remove the cooked food from the oil to a plate covered with paper towels to absorb any excess oil and serve.
