Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For best success with this recipe, use medium-firm fish fillets such as cod, tilapia, halibut or perch.
  • tip 2
    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.
  • tip 3
    This best Pan-Fried Fish is perfect on its own or served with tartar sauce, lemon wedges and your favorite sides.
