Crusty Hot Pan-Fried Fish

Nicole Bredeweg


My mother had a way with fresh fish. I loved going fishing and coming back with a mess of blue gill (hated cleaning the fish, though), then having her dredge the fillets (my dad was good at the filleting) through flour. Best breakfast ever. And, no, it didn't happen often -- I was a GIRL after all -- but sometimes a neighbor would show up with some, too.
I strove for years to figure out how she did it -- she was a natural cook and I just couldn't seem to learn it from her.
So when I found this recipe, it was wonderful. And, I have no idea where I got it from!

In flat pan, combine flour and 2 tsp spice mix. In separate pan, combine egg and milk until well blended. Season fillets by sprinkling about 1/4 tsp spice mix on each.
