I am wondering about Mustard use as a condiment in fried fish. Is this something that originated in the Soul Food Era, or is it something people have done all over the world for many years.
I am an army brat and have thus lived in California, Minnesota, Texas, Missouri, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Florida, but I ask people at restaurants for Mustard for my fried fish and they look at me as if I am crazy!
My friend and I recentlty went out to eat and he saw me dipping beer battered fish in Mustard and he laughed, and asked the waitress if she had ever heard of anyone doing this, and if it was just a down ssouth thing.
Please help me any way you can with some answers. Is this just something my Dad used and liked or does it have some (any) kind of past history.
Thank you for your time in this matter.
