    Mivashel's Note:

    This is just a really simple and easy, and quick, and delicious version of friend fish fillets. Serve it with whatever side you would like - I personally like it with a nice fresh vegetable salad, like a Greek/Aegean/Hortaki. It is parve, so you can go ahead and eat it with dairy.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6


    fillets ...

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      thaw the fish if frozen - rinse it under water and pat dry if you wish.
    2. 2
      preheat about an inch of oil in a pan.
    3. 3
      cut the fillets into smaller pieces if you want.
    4. 4
      crack the egg into a shallow bowl and beat - add a pinch of salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      prepare the spiced fish fry coating - mix roughly 50:50 flour:spices. I suggest adding a fair amount of salt and pepper, and also chili powder if you like it hot. ANY COMBO OF SPICES WORK, be liberal. MIX UNTIL HOMOGENOUS.
    6. 6
      dip the fish in egg - let the extra egg drip off (tap against the side of bowl).
    7. 7
      coat both sides of the egged up fish in the frying coating.
    8. 8
      carefully (hot oil is dangerous!) fry both sides of the fish in the oil until golden brown on both sides, and the inside of the fish is flaky and white.
    9. 9
      dry on paper towels lined with a bed of thyme.
    10. 10
      garnish with lemon wedges and thyme sprigs (optional).

      This made a quick fix for fish. They were shallow fried in a small amount of olive oil. I used a generous quantity of Greek seasoning with a hint of chipotle powder mixed in. This was served with Baked Green Beans and Greek Orzo Salad. Made for *PAC Spring 2009*

      Nice recipe. The preparation was not different from my usual way of frying fish. I did take your suggestion and added chili powder, which I thought gave it a nice touch. I also liked the idea of draining the cooked fish on thyme. I had lemon thyme from my garden which was very nice. Thanks Kahane, for sharing your recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2009.
