Uber yummy fish with a thin crispy coating. The coating can also be used to create fantastic fried chicken!

I made this for the first time last night. My husband liked it, and the flavor was good, but I will tweak the recipe if I ever make it again. I found that I threw out a TON of the egg mixture, but didn't have enough of the cornstarch stuff. Husband thought it was "too spicy" so I will double the starch but leave the herb quantities alone. All in all, a successful dinner. And it looked pretty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cornstarch and herbs in a bowl, set aside.
  2. Whisk eggs with milk and cayenne until a butter-yellow color is achieved. Set aside.
  3. Dip each fish fillet half in egg mixture, let excess drip off. Then coat in cornstarch mix. Set on plates so they do not stick together.
  4. Melt about 1/2 a Tbsp of butter in a large skillet. Add 5 or 6 fillet halves. Add butter as needed to keep the coating from drying out.
  5. Cook until a deep golden color is achieved and fish is cooked through. It should flake easily.
  6. Enjoy!
