Feed Me: Perfectly Pan Fried Fish

Out of all the magazines out there I think  Bon Appetit is my absolute favorite.  The recipes are super inspiring and completely doable.  I love fanning through an old issue to help me figure out what I should make for dinner. I don’t do this nearly enough.

Today’s recipe was a quick blurb in the magazine on how to pan fry fish.  Luckily I had just bought some tilapia and could try it out.  Very simple my friends.  I used fish, flour, one egg, panko bread crumbs, salt, and pepper.

Fried Fish

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get picture of the actual process.  My hand were covered in egg, flour and bread crumbs…I think food bloggers have a third hand. But it came out deliciously. Crunchy on the outside. Moist on the inside.  It doesn’t get any better.  Of course I paired it with brussell sprouts-I’m obsessed.Fried Fish2



Flour (1/2 a cup?)

1 Egg

6 Fillets-I used Tilapia

Panko Bread Crumbs

Salt & Pepper

Cooking oil


Add 1/2 in of oil to a shallow pan. I used a medium high heat.  Be careful so the hot oil doesn’t splash on you.  Make three plates.  One with flour (I added a few salt and pepper shakes), one with egg (use a fork to mix the yolk in), one with panko bread crumbs.  Coat the fillet in flour, dip in egg, cover with panko bread crumbs.  Add fish to hot pan.  Fish cooks pretty quickly.  2-3 min on each side.  Make sure to watch it so it doesn’t burn.  The fish will be ready when it falls a part easily with a fork. Serve right away.
