I'm not much of a fish fryer, but once in the blue moon, when the mood strikes right, I don't mind a nice fried fish fillet. Here's to you, Mama! :)
- 1 lb white fish ( such as cod, snapper or halibut)
- 0.5 c. flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- salt/cracked black pepper/parsley flakes or fresh
- 1 c. panko crumbs
- 0.5 c. fresh Parmesan (shredded)
- 2 TBS oil
Coat the fillet in flour, dip in the egg mixture, now coat with crumbs, and throw on the pan. Fry on medium heat until crust turns a beautiful golden color (about 2-3 min. per side). Done!
What's on the plate? Fish that's moist, yet not greasy. Crust that's flavorful, yet not overwhelming. It's a perfect combination of textures. Go ahead, break it open with a fork. You should hear a gentle crunching of the panko crust as the tender, flaky fillet is revealed. Mama dunnit right! :) Enjoy.
