Great recipe. However, only a Yankee would try to fry in 1 1/2 inches of oil. They need to float, people. 4 to 6 inches, in a deep pot or dutch oven. Fried in batches. Sub a 1/2 stick of salt butter for the sauce. We served with a busty Rosè, Zin is a great choice. If it's hot out a Brut Champagne or cellar cold Tempranilo. Super solid.
