    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is someone's Mom's fried fish recipe but it's not MY Mom. I found it in Taste of Home, June/July 2005 issue and made it tonight for dinner. It's very, very good and SO easy. The recipe called for the fish to be deep fried but I fried it in about 3/4 inch of oil in a large, heavy skillet. Also, the original recipe called for whitefish fillets, cut in half lengthwise....I used some thin Chilean sea bass fillets and it was excellent. I think any firm, white fish fillets will work. This recipe was printed in Taste of Home magazine and attributed to Julie in Wisconsin. Julie, if you ever become a member of Zaar, contact me and I'll ask Kathy to transfer this recipe over to you and thanks for the great dinner!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • 1 1/2 cups crushed saltine crackers (about 45 crackers)
    • 2 lbs fish fillets (use a firm, white fish, about 1/2 inch thick such as -- whitefish, tilapia, sea bass)
    • vegetable oil (for frying)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place beaten eggs and saltine cracker crumbs in separate shallow bowls or pie tins.
    2. 2
      Dip fillets into eggs, then coat with crumbs; let stand for 5 minutes.
    3. 3
      In a heavy, deep skillet, or electric frying pan, heat oil (about 3/4 to 1 inch of oil) to 375°. Fry fillets, a few at a time, for 2 minutes on each side or until fish is golden brown and flakes easily (I found that when the fish is golden brown it's DONE).
    4. 4
      Drain on a rack over paper towels. If you're making lots of fish place the rack in a 225° oven while you're cooking the remaining batches.

      This was awesome! Quick and easy, and a great taste, I did use wheat crackers but that was the only sub.and everyone loved the fish. I knew it had to be good when it came form Taste of Home.

      Very easy. Great base recipe- will try with some spices next time. My kids (who won't eat fish) loved it! They thought it was chicken & asked for seconds. Thanks Hey Jude!
