DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: Use any fresh herb such as basil, sage, rosemary or a combination.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy pan, add the onion and fry until caramelized (brown).
  • In a separate bowl, combine the bread crumbs and herbs.
  • Add the caramelized onions to the crumb mixture and combine well.
  • Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper.
  • Dip fish into the beaten egg, then into the crumb mixture and pat lightly to help crumbs adhere to fillet. I usually refrigerate the breaded fish for 15 minutes or so, but this is just my preference.
  • Pan fry in olive oil til crust is golden and fish is of desired doneness, about 5 minute per side.
  • Serve with your favorite side dish. I like mine with plain steamed basmati rice and cold sliced cucumbers.
