Pan-Fried Fish Fillets is one of the easiest and most popular ways to cook fish.
1 1/2pounds mild-flavor fish fillets, about 3/4 inch thick
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour, cornmeal or grated Parmesan cheese
Vegetable oil or shortening
1 Cut fish fillets into 6 serving pieces. Sprinkle both sides of fish with salt and pepper.
2 Beat egg and water in shallow bowl until well mixed. Sprinkle flour on waxed paper or a plate. Dip both sides of fish pieces into egg, then coat completely with flour.
3 Heat oil (1/8 inch) in 10-inch skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes. Fry fish in oil 6 to 10 minutes, turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork and is brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
