Crumb-Crusted Fish With Creamy Corn Grits

Total Time - 35 minutes / Makes 4 (with leftovers) Servings

Cooking Sequence

  • Prepare fish and begin to cook - 10 minutes
  • While fish cooks, prepare grits - 10 minutes
  • Complete both and serve - 15 minutes

Crumb-Crusted Fish

1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup egg substitute (or 2 large eggs, beaten)
2 cups crunchy cheese-flavored corn snacks
large zip-top bag
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 firm, white fish fillets (like tilapia or cod), 20–24 oz; thawed
2 tablespoons canola oil

  1. Place flour on plate (may be paper); place eggs in shallow bowl. Place cheese snacks in large zip-top bag; seal tightly and crush with fingertips until finely ground. Add panko, parsley, coriander, and pepper to cheese crumbs, mixing until well blended. Place mixture in second shallow bowl.
  2. Dip fish in flour, coating both sides, then dip into eggs (allowing excess to drip off). Finally, dip into crumb mixture, pressing with fingertips to evenly coat (wash hands).
  3. Preheat large, nonstick sauté pan on medium 3-4 minutes. Place oil in pan, then add one-half of the fish fillets; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden and crisp. Place on paper towels to drain. Repeat with remaining fillets; add a little more oil, if needed. Serve.

Aprons Advice

  • Complete your meal with green peas, dinner rolls, and Key lime pie for dessert.
  • Don’t miss the flour step when breading the fish; it's a common mistake. Dip in flour first, egg next, then breading; the flour keeps your crust from falling off while frying.
