Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal or all-purpose flour
  • 1 lb. fish fillets
  • 1 cup oil

Steps

  • 1
    Beat egg in shallow dish or pie pan until well blended. Stir in milk. Place flour in another shallow dish. Dip fish fillets in egg mixture; dip in flour to coat.
  • 2
    Heat oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add fish; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown and fish flakes easily with fork, turning once. If desired, season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • For best success with this recipe, use medium-firm fish fillets such as cod, tilapia, halibut or perch.
  • When you fry fish in a skillet, be sure the oil is hot enough, otherwise, the fish will steam instead of fry. The thicker your fillets are, the longer they will take to cook.
  • This best Pan-Fried Fish is perfect on its own or served with tartar sauce, lemon wedges and your favorite sides.
