This day, I decided to suck it up with the extra dishes and fry some fish the proper way. The ingredients are all pantry staples, so all you need to pick up is the fish. I chose rockfish because it was on sale, but any fatty white fish will do.
And yes, the pintos in the photo were an awkward choice of a side dish. I did it for nutritional reasons. Rice or barley would be a better idea. The oven roasted tomato, eggplant, and asparagus, however, were perfect accompaniments, and filled the plate disproportionately to the calories involved. This crazy full plate contains fewer calories than the average hamburger with fixings - before sides.
4 rockfish fillets (about 1 lb)
*3/4 C panko breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp kosher salt
*1 tsp parsley flakes
1/4 C milk
*1/2 C cornstarch
oil for frying
1. In one shallow dish (I use pie plates), sprinkle corn starch. In next one, beat together egg and milk. In third, combine panko, salt, and parsley. In a large skillet, start heating 1/8" oil over medium-high heat. Open windows and turn on the hood fan.
