Honestly, I love deep fried food
, and am pretty good at it. Everything from fried chicken to calamari to falafel, etc.
But it's extremely rare that I make it on a boat. First is the oil storage issue, and then there is the energy issue, and finally comes the risk.
I have a fire blanket in my galley
, but based on a few experiences working in a commercial
kitchen as a youth, I simply hope that I never have to deal with a grease fire. They are absolutely horrific, spreading insidiously and difficult to put out. I really would not want to be dealing with one on a boat. I'll only attempt it at the dock, dead calm, and always attended.
But understanding that people are free souls and may do as they please, I will get a vicarious thrill out of seeing delicious photos of lightly fried foods prepared on boats in more exotic locals.
And yeah, I would go with the pressure cooker pot, shallow oil as you can, turning your food
to cook it with a screen
. And a fire extinguisher very close by.
