  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

For Frying

  • 4 Tablespoons oil


  • Lightly beat eggs in a dish
  • In another dish combine flour, bread crumbs and seasoning
  • Dip fish in egg and then in flour mixture. Shake off any excess flour.
  • Add a couple of tablespoons of oil to a pan and heat pan over medium heat.
  • When pan is hot, add 3-4 fillets to pan. Cook 3 minutes per side so each side is nicely browned. 
  • Remove fish from pan and place on a baking sheet lined with a baking rack. Place cooked fish in a 350 degree oven while you cook remaining fish. 
  • Wipe out pan and add additional oil. Repeat process with remaining fish.
