I found this recipe on the web by Kittencalskitchen, tweaking it to suit our tastes. I love the simplicity of this cooking method, and it is a definite keeper in this house. This is very crispy fish without deep frying, no mushiness either. For oven-fried fish, this is as good as it gets. I make it in a cast iron skillet. Enjoy!

How to Make CRISPY OVEN-FRIED COD FISH -- BONNIE'S

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees and set the oven rack to second-lowest position.
  2. Mix the cornmeal, bread crumbs, and seasonings in the first shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in the second shallow bowl.

    Add one piece of fish to the DRY bowl, coat well and remove and dip the fish in the WET bowl. Return to the DRY bowl and coat again. Do this with all the fish pieces. It is a 3-step process: dry, wet, finishing with dry. Transfer all breaded fish to a plate.
  3. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet, or any oven-proof skillet. Cast iron just browns better. Fry the underside of the fish until it is brown 1 or 2 minutes, then turn and fry the other side. When all of the pieces are browned, put the skillet and the fish in the hot oven. Bake about 5 or 6 minutes until just cooked through.
  4. Here is what it looks like. Serve immediately.
  5. I have an excellent recipe for tartar sauce posted on this site. TARTAR SAUCE
  6. Cook's tip:
    Pie plates make great shallow breading dishes.
    Next time I plan on using white cornmeal. I fry a lot of catfish using white cornmeal, and we prefer it over the yellow. It is not as coarse. I will let you know what happens when I do. Enjoy!
