Breading fish

I was watching John Besh of New Orleans today. He took two slices of fresh white bread and with a rolling pin, rolled them out as flat as they would go. He them took a square cut fillet of red snapper (or fish of your choice) and placed it on the rolled out bread. The bread was still larger than the fillet, so he cut it to size. He placed the two pieces in his hand and turned over so the bread was showing. Placed a couple of pats of butter on the bread and placed on a grill like a grilled cheese sandwich. When the bread was toasted, he then turned it over and with a bit of oil and seasoning on the fish, he fried the fish until done.

He said that he made this at a competition in Iceland and won with it. It looked real good.

So this was basically a piece of grilled fish with a piece of bread and butter on top?

Yup. And he won the competion with it. Who'd a thunk it!! You serve it with the fish on top. He also had Hollandaise sauce as the bed for it.

That is really cool. I don't like bought white bread, so I would have to try that with some other kind instead. Seems so much easier than what I do now :)

Since (hopefully) the main constituent of white bread is flour, I prefer to bread my fish in a flour of my choosing (sans calcium propionate, etc.)

So I am sitting here and had a thought. (Oh dear, the world is in danger again) I have yet to buy panko bread crumbs. But they are on my list for next month's shopping.

Would it be possible to make a patty of sorts with the panko to replace the piece of bread and do the piece of fish that way? Or would it fall apart when you flip it?

I think you need something to bind the Panko crumbs to the fish, probably egg.
