Restaurant: We’re using two different Fryers: 1 for shellfish and the second for chicken. But we use the same frying powder. Is this okay?

    If the coating that is used for seafood is the same as the coating used for chicken and the products are not separated this is DANGEROUS.

    I would make a call to the Health Department and report it.

    Let me guess...they use the same fryer for chicken, seafood and fries!...I bet that tastes wonderful!...(also DANGEROUS)

    Powder? Frying is done in oil, not powder.

      No not the actual frying process I was asking about the coating

    Hahahahahaha. Shellfish and other meats must NEVER be cooked in the same fryer - no matter what oil you use. You really should take some cooking classes.....

      And I never said anything about oil either. And you can use the same oil it just needs a disclaimer in the menu

    Wait a minute... you're saying that because both fish and chicken are dipped into the breading, someone allergic to seafood might get sick. Correct?

    Well, that is the LEAST of your worries. Once raw chicken or seafood has come in contact with that breading, the leftover breading should be thrown away. There should NOT be a giant tub of breading that is being used all day long. NO, NO, NO! A small amount of breading should be taken from the tub, per order, and whatever is not used should be discarded.

    what the heck is frying powder???

    • Phan6 months agoReport

      It’s like an already made breading that you coat the food in before we fry it

    "Frying powder"? What in the world is that? Do you mean "coating"?

      I don’t work there anymore. I told my boss before I left but he says it’s not cross contamination so it doesn’t matter. But I believe some people who are highly allergic will have a problem with this but I’m not sure.
