Keeping egg wash...

If I beat an egg and dip a fish fillet in it, can I refrigerate the egg and use it safely the next day for another fish fillet?

I wouldn't hesitate. A cold egg, with a cold piece of fish in it, and then refrigerated? Go ahead.

Hey, than you for asking this, Laury!
I was wondering this a few days ago when I brushed a loaf of French bread with an eggwash. Eggs are not something I'm in short supply of, but it seemed like such a waste to dump the eggwash when the only thing that touched it was a small whisk and a silicon brush.

Does anyone know how long it would keep? A week? (I'm hoping)

In your case I would just make scrambled egg the next day. It only touched bread and just put it between 2 slices of the bread you brushed it with! LOL

I have heard that you can keep egg whites four days, and egg yolks two days, but these may be wives tales???

Now I'm really glad I saved the egg. Another catfish fillet with Panko breading tonight. Roasted baby bok choi and Basmati rice on the side. A few squirts of lemon and YUM!
