Then in the egg and milk.

5Panko both sides, cover well.
Put on a plate and put in refrigerator,15 to 60 minutes.
This will help the panco to adhere to the fish.

6Put olive oil and butter in a skillet,
JUST ENOUGH TO COVER THE FISH.
HEAT THE OIL and butter to 350, don't let it burn.
Check oil temp, by a sprinkle of cold water.
If it sizzles...add the fish.
Do not crowd fish. Fry till golden, then fry the other side.
Put on a wire rack over paper towels.

7Warm the bread hoagie, CUT OPEN.
PUT A SMALL AMOUNT OF MAYO OR TARTER SAUCE, ON BOTH OF INSIDES OF BREAD.
LAYER COLESLAW THEN FISH ON THE HOAGIE.
CLOSE AND ENJOY THE CRUNCH!
I LIKE TO ADD CUT UP, GREEK PEPPERONCINI OR
A FEW DASHES OF GREEN TABASCO...
FOR A MILD KICK! Please enjoy!....
