A Quick and Different Fried Fish Recipe

A Quick and Different Fried Fish Recipe created by JustJanS

From a cottager at a northern lake, left with a pile of fresh caught fish, and no cornflake/breading material on hand! Admittedly, we use a "heart unhealthy" "lard" to fry this in, but its fantastic on taste Size of fillets has a lot to do with the amount of breading and eggwash, so adjust accordingly Fish must be both boned and skinned! If doing as a "shore lunch", eggs and milk travel well in a stainlees thermos!

Ready In:
35mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 3 3 lbs rainbow trout, filltes boned and skinned or 3 lbs lake trout fillets, boned and skinned (also works with cod, sole and haddock)
  • premium brand salt and vinegar potato chips
  • lard (1/3 lb to fry)
  • 2 -3 eggs
  • 12 cup milk

directions

  • Fillet, bone and skin fish.
  • Pinhole the bag of chips, and sit, dance roll or otherwise crush the chips to a very fine meal texture.
  • Bread the fish in the chip meal.
  • Mix eggs and milk well.
  • Dip the breaded fish in egg mixture.
  • Redip in chip meal.
  • Melt lard in cast iron pan over medium high heat.
  • Toss in coated fillets, cooking about 6-7 minutes until "well done".
  • Works well as a plated meal at the cottage or home, fits well into a "fish sandwidge" with sliced white onion and sourdough buns on the shoreline, and accompaniment might included baked beans and/or ham/garlic sausage, serving depend on locale, you'll scarf this down in quantity on some nameless rock in the north, a little less eaten at home or in the cottage -- .

    Russ cooked this for dinner using fish we caught ourselves and an Aussie premium brand chip-Colvan's Crinkle Cut S&V. I loved the light crispy texture a lot, but we both agreed we couldn't taste any S&V at all. I would make this again if I was without crumbs, but wouldn't be too concerned about the flavour of chips I had on hand.
