I’ve made these before and they were so delicious, so of course, I had to make them again! The recipe is courtesy of Leite’s Culinaria. The first time I made them was just after I dropped my first camera, so there were no pictures of the prep. Today, I’ve got a new camera, so I’ve got pictures for you!
2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. celery salt – my addition
1 tsp. onion powder – my addition
1 tsp. garlic powder – my addition
2 cups panko
1 pound fish filets – I used cod
canola oil for frying
lemon wedges or ketchup or tartar sauce
Slice your fish into pieces that are pretty much the same size; this will make it easier to fry them. Pat them dry.
canola oil in skillet
Turn the skillet on high until it gets nice and hot but before it smokes. Be careful! In the meanwhile, take the fish and start the dipping process.
Let it fry for another five minutes or so. If the pieces are a bit thick, you may need to sit them on their sides so that they brown completely and cook thoroughly. Prepare a dish with a paper towel, so that it will soak up any excess oil.
