Can You Reuse Oil After Frying Fish?

What can I do with leftover frying oil?

Can you fry chicken and fish in the same oil?

Yes. If you cook the fish first then the chicken will pick up flavor from the fish and that flavor is largely contained (transmitted) by oil which cooked out of the fish. The chicken will subsequently not ‘last’ any longer than the fish would (fish oil becomes rancid fairly quickly.) Solution: cook the chicken first.
