Fried Fish

Who doesn’t like a good fried fish? Here is one of the ways that I like to make this dish. When I am deep frying anything, I usually use vegetable/corn/or peanut oil. You could actually substitute the fish for any meat or vegetable with this recipe. You could use pork, chicken, tofu, eggplant etc.

Fried Fish

Serves: 4-6 people

2 pounds of any filleted white fish such as cod, tilapia, flounder

1 egg lightly beaten mixed with 3 tablespoons of milk

1/4 cup flour

2-3 cups breadcrumbs any kind (I use panko)

4 cups of oil to fry

  • Put the fish fillets, flour, beaten eggs and milk, and breadcrumbs in separate plates and bowls.
  • Keep these next to each other as shown in picture below to make it easier to bread and fry.

  • First take a fillet of fish and dust it with flour.
  • Then dip the fillet in the egg mixture and finally roll it in the bread crumbs till  it is completely covered.
  • Repeat this till all the fish fillets have been covered with crumbs.
