A bath in beaten eggs and a dusting in well seasoned flour is PERFECT. The only thing to make sure of is that you have seasoning at the level you like (ours was a little bland but the texture was perfect). Self rising flour seems to work best (or combine some flour with a tempura batter mix and spices).
