Recipe by Rinshinomori
Worried about deep frying foods? I am. Especially as I've gotten older, I try to look for ways to cut oil especially bad oil in my foods. This recipe makes wonderfully crisp fried fish with minimal oil; for example, 1 Tablespoon olive oil for 2 pieces (4-oz each) fish in less than 6 minutes. Works great for most white fish fish such as halibut, flounder, red snapper, rockfish, mahi mahi, orange roughy, cod, ling cod, and even salmon. It is best with a fish thickness no more than 1 inch.
- 1⁄3 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
- 1 egg
- 2 (5 ounce) fish such as halibut
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
- Old Bay Seasoning
