Recipe by Petroushka

I love fish, and the family says I make the best fish in the house. I wonder if they just want me to cook sometimes? Maybe not, because this recipe really is yummy -- and easy.

Excellent recipe! I used flounder filets, and used panko bread crumbs. I filled my skillet to about 3/4" deep and the flounder only cooked about 2 minutes per side since they are thin. Its a keeper

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 800 -900 g fish, most firm white fish works well (when it's on sale, I use tail-end pieces of Atlantic salmon)
  • 12 cup flour (or more)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (I usually make these out of some interesting leftover bread)
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped herbs (such as dill or parsley)
  • salt and pepper, to taste, I use very little salt
  • 14-12 cup oil (for cooking, adjust to suit your pan)


  1. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Season breadcrumbs with parmesan, herbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Start to heat oil in frying pan. I use a ridged pan.
  4. While oil is heating, dip each piece of fish in flour, then in beaten egg, then in seasoned breadcrumbs.
  5. Cook fish in hot oil until done, and nicely browned.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Serve with my Recipe #210251. Everyone says this sauce makes this recipe, so it is worth the effort.
