Remove and drop in a mixture of beaten egg and a small amount of the marinade mixture. Roll in seasoned flour (Toni's Chachere's Creole seasonings and salt and pepper to taste).
Fry quickly in a hot skillet with a little oil and butter. Drain and serve immediately with fresh vegetables and sliced homegrown tomatoes.
