Fried Fish

I have some lovely Pollack, and enough bacon fat to fry it in.

I'm thinking of shaking the pieces in a mixture of flour, corn meal, and panko then pan frying in the bacon fat.

Do you think this breading mixture would work well? Do you have a better idea?

Thanks, Robo. That sounds good. I picked up some Mrs. Dash Original so I'll season with that. It sure smells good.

Standard breading procedure is in order.
Flour: to help egg to stick
Egg wash: to help the breading stick
Bread crumbs: to add the flavor, texture, and cooking protection.

When you use standard culinary practices you get good results most every time.

Interesting, as in ground up crackers? Like some of those yummy stone-ground wheat ones?

Or the Ritz/HiHo/Georgia kind? Or even cheese nips...

I usually beat 1 egg and pour it on the marinated fish. Then I mix the fish with the egg properly. I then prepare a mix of flour, bread crumbs, 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper, 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder and 1/2 teaspoon of hot chilli powder(optional). Then I dip the fish which is already coated with eggs in the bread mix. The frying oil should be very, very hot and very deep, then dip the fish in the oil and complete frying as usual. I discovered that there is no difference between dipping each piece of fish in the eggs or pouring the beaten eggs allover the fish. It gives the same result.
