I never thought I would submit a fish recipe, but the kids found this on the net and talked me into making it. Wow, the salty crunchy coating is fantastic, especially fried in butter.
- 1 lb thawed perch fillets or 1 lb cod fish fillet
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 eggs
- 3⁄4 cup crushed pretzel
- butter or oil
- Mix the flour and seasonings in a plastic bag.
- Place stirred eggs and pretzels onto seperate plates.
- Dip the fish into the flour, then the eggs, then the pretzels.
- Fry in hot butter or oil until golden brown and it flakes easily with a fork, about 10m min's.
Oh yum! Made this today with some fresh cod fillets. The only additional flavor I added was a light brush of mustard on each fillet before the flour, egg, and pretzel crumbs went on. The final flavor and texture were both excellent; I'll definitely make this again. Even though there were no nuts in the recipe, as I ate it I was reminded of my favorite pecan crusted fish at a local restaurant. That's served with a maple butter sauce, and so I drizzled my piece of fish with a little maple syrup. Delectable!
Delicious!! So easy, so quick - loved the texture. I used Tilapia because that's what I had in the house and a flattened boneless, skinless chicken breast for the hubby & we both really enjoyed our meals.
perfect my husband likes it did not cook it long enough had to put in the microwave for a minute but did not spoil it thanks Can'tcooker
