How many of you use cotton seed oil to fry your fish in.

I have heard that olive oil wont stand up to the high
heat that it takes to cook fish. Olive oil has a low smoke point.
coconut oil will take the heat.

I don’t deep fry fish. I put a small amount in a frying pan.
I’m the only fish eater in our house so I do small amounts (of fish) when I cook.
Does that make a difference?

If I'm in a hurry, I'll just use a little canola oil from the grocery store. Otherwise I use whats on sale, mostly peanut oil from Academy. Used cotton seed oil to deep fry a turkey last year and really couldn't taste much of a difference between it and the peanut oil.

More recently, I've just been spraying them with Pam and putting them in our convection toaster oven, wife likes them better that way and they still come out crispy.

I did something similar in the air fryer. My bride likes fish sticks so I did some crappie fish sticks and french fries for her in that contraption. Just sprayed them with olive oil and breaded them with panko.

a lot of people do fry fish in a tiny amount of oil and just cook them
about 2.5 minutes per side .Just need the oil hot enough to seal the
fish when you put on to cook to keep the oil out of the fish. would
take a long time for a big fish fry.

I was wondering because the cotton seed oil at the Bass pro shop
is by the deep fryers.
