Oven-Fried Fish

This recipe is written on a sheet of copy machine paper and was in my recipe drawer.  I’m not sure where it came from…the fish was good, though!

You will need to grab a heavy, oven-safe pan as well as a rack for the uncooked fish.


1 cup plain breadcrumbs

1 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tsp. seasoning salt

1 pound of cod filets

Pat the filets dry, so that the ingredients stick well.

2 large eggs

1/3 cup oil, more or less

Preheat oven to 475 degrees F.

Combine breadcrumbs and cornmeal and seasoning salt in one shallow container.

top: dry ingredients
bottom: eggs

In separate container, beat the two eggs.

Grab one piece of fish at a time; dredge in dry ingredients.

Dip into egg and cover completely.  Allow some egg to drip off.  Dredge in dry ingredients again, then set fish on rack to dry a bit.

Turn stove on high and add oil to the pan, enough to cover the bottom, and get the oil really hot.

Gently add the fish, one piece at a time and let brown for about five minutes.

Turn fish over, add a bit more oil and let fish brown for another minute or two.

Remove pan from stove and place in oven.  Set timer for about seven minutes.  Fish is cooked through when it flakes easily with a fork.

Drain on paper towel
