Your Basic Panfried Fish

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bec6206

From Betty Crocker's "Good and Easy" Cookbook from 1971, this is your basic panfried fish. For a variation, you can make Fish Almondine by browning 1/4 cup butter in a small skillet; stir in 1/4 cup toasted slivered blanched almonds, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 2 teaspoons lemon juice. Just before serving, top fish with this almond butter. :)

Every once in a while it is good to go back to basics . I did not use an egg, just moistened the fish and dipped them in Panko crumbs, served with a wedge of lemon, roasted potatoes, Steamed Broccli & new garden fresh carrots Lovely Dinner Thanks Bec
