Pan-Fried Fish



  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Cut into four serving-size pieces, if necessary. Measure thickness of fish. In a shallow dish combine egg and water. In another shallow dish stir together cornmeal, salt, and pepper. Dip fish into egg mixture; coat fish with cornmeal mixture.
  2. In a large skillet heat 1/4 inch melted shortening or oil. Add half of the fish in a single layer, frying on one side until golden. (If fillets have skin, fry skin side last.) Turn carefully; fry until second side is golden and fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. Allow 3 to 4 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 300 degree F oven while frying remaining fish.
  3. Makes 4 servings
