I have had zero luck with frying polenta. It always turns out exactly like yours.And, I have a question... how is polenta different from cornmeal mush? I have always wondered that. Is it just a fancier name?Either way, I have never been able to fry mush, and when I got all uppity , I could not fry polenta either.
Try cutting it up and laying it on a paper towel first like you would tofu. It should absorb most of the moisture. Mine have never been too mushy to begin with so maybe you just need a different brand?I like to dip the slices in egg yolk and panko and then fry them. Fabulous!
Can't help with the polenta. I hate hte stuff. Maybe because every time I taste it, it's mushy. Anyway... just wanted to tell you how much I love your new banner.
You could try coating them with dried polenta, panko, bread crumbs or plain old flour. Also using a non-stick pan could help if you have one.
Never. Not once, ever. And it irritates me to no end. I've even tried the Trader Joe's "log o' polenta". It's not like I want that picture perfect slice, with grill-marks and the pretty diced "maters on top, for heaven's sake.
ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
