I made a gluten free version by substituting Celimix (sifted on to the fish instead of dipped in) for the flour, and bread crumbs made with two slices of Udi's gluten free white bread toasted lightly and crumbed in a mini blender. Try it with your own favourite gluten free flour and bread. It was very good.
Really delicious and very easy. Took about 15 minutes.
I have used this recipe for PIKE!!! We get Pike at our local grocery store... and it is really toothsome... lots of bones to remove, but delicious! Use PANKO for crispiness and also, make hush puppies with the dredge after.. put some herbs and add dome milk or water.. It is a wonderfully versatile recipe!!
i have made this recipe multiple times and always to rave reviews from my children. i even took leftovers to a family with VERY picky children and they scarfed up all of it (the parents didn't even get a bite!). the mom called me late that night to get the recipe as her children had never EVER eaten more than one bite of fish before!
tonight we will have this as a fish sandwich without the bread... topped with greens, diced tomatoes (easier for the kids to eat than sliced tomatoes), red onions and the DELICIOUS tartar sauce.
Loved this fish! I rarely "fry" but will make this often. Any white fish fillets would work. I used panko and they were light and crispy and a beautiful color. Didn't love the tartar sauce, though. It was too chunky for us.
Since trying this recipe when it first came out, I have made it again and again. Even though it is breaded (which requires a lot of steps), it is actually quite easy. For easy clean up, I put the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs on paper plates so all I have to do is toss the plates when I'm finished. I also use panko bread crumbs (in the Asian food section of the grocery store) and love the light crispy texture they provide. What really makes it spectacular is the tartar sauce recipe. It is delicious!
