Original recipe yields 8 fillets

Directions

  1. Heat 1/8 inch of vegetable oil in two large cast-iron or heavy-duty frying pans over medium-high heat.
  2. Arrange three separate pie plates or shallow bowls for breading the fish. Combine flour, salt and pepper in one bowl, milk and eggs in another, and bread crumbs in the third bowl.
  3. Coat each fillet in the flour mixture, then dredge them in egg wash, then coat them well with bread crumbs.
  4. Place 4 fillets in each frying pan. Cook until golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels and serve immediately.

This was super helpful, thank you! I've been looking for a skillet fish recipe where the breading didn't slide off and this was it! I changed pretty much every ingredient to suit my gluten-free and dairy-free needs, but I think the key was separating the flour and breadcrumbs. If anyone cares, I used 1 c. gluten free all purpose flour, 1/4 c almond milk, 2 c. cornmeal mixed with 1-2 tsp italian seasoning, and of course the eggs. It turned out great! Might be more flavorful with more salt or possibly some paprika?
