1 lb. fillets serves 3
Rinse fillets; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with flour. Dip in beaten egg; coat with one of the following crumb mixtures (adjust amounts to the number of fillets you have):
Flour-Cornmeal: 1/2 c. flour, 1/2 c. cornmeal, 1 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper.
Cracker: 1 c. finely crushed saltines (sounds crazy, but potato chips work too) 1/8 tsp. black pepper.
Flour: 1 c. flour, 1 tsp. salt, 1/2 tsp. black pepper.
Heat 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 cup vegetable oil in skillet until hot. (Butter mixture should be about 1/4" deep) Fry fish over medium heat until brown on both sides, turning once (6-8 min. total). Be careful to not overcook.
