    If you take something like fish or chicken that is in breadcrumbs or batter, and you deep-fry it, how on earth do you calculate the calories in the fat that has clung to the food after it is taken out of the fat?

    I would probably allocate 2 tablespoons of oils worth to the food if I was cooking it at home (if it was particularly greasy - maybe a little more).

    If it's a resturant menu, then those calories would already include the cooking method.
