My friend Keli gave me this recipe a few years ago and I just rediscovered it. It is really easy, SO much tastier and much healthier than store bought, minced fish sticks!
2 cups panko (coarse Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 cup all – purpose flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
Vegetable oil, for frying
1 pound sole fillet, cut into 1- by – 3 – inch pieces (wild haddock from Costco)
Place panko, flour, and eggs in three separate shallow dishes; season flour with salt and pepper.
Fill a large skillet with enough oil to reach a depth of ¼ inch; heat over medium-high heat. Working in batches, dredge fish in flour, shaking off any excess; dip into egg. Transfer fish to panko, covering fish completely and pressing lightly to adhere. Arrange fish in the pan in a single layer without crowding; fry until golden and cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain; season with salt. Serve immediately.
