Here's a great recipe for the next time you want to coat and fry fish (not fingers!).

What You'll Need

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups plain bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 pounds white-fleshed fish, such as haddock, cod, or whiting, cut into 4-ounce fillets
  • 1 cup vegetable oil

What to Do

  1. Place flour, eggs, and bread crumbs in three separate pie plates. Combine garlic powder and oregano with bread crumbs. Pat fish fillets dry with a paper towel.
  2. Dip fillets, one at a time, into flour with one hand, then dip floured fish into beaten eggs with other hand. Use your dry hand to coat fish with bread crumbs. Place breaded fish on a plate.
  3. When all fish has been breaded, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry fish until brown on both sides. Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels.

I'm wondering, will Tilapia fish would work with this recipe?

We have not tried this recipe in the Test Kitchen, so we can not guarantee the recipe with tilapia. I believe the flavors would work, but it's a delicate fish, so we're not sure how it would hold up. Enjoy!

easy and well seasoned a keeper

After I fry the fish and I need to keep it warm and chrispy what is the best way to do that

Heat the oven about 250 degrees, place fish on a wire rack placed on a cookie sheet. This should keep the fish warm and crispy.
