prepared yellow mustard
1 1/2 cups
instant mashed potato flakes
oil for frying
4 (6 ounce) fillets
The boyfriend stopped 3 times to say how awesome the coating was. The key is definitely as others have said, to flour the fish first - this way the egg/mixture sticks better and you get a better coating. I could have eaten this without a sauce on the side - the mustard made such a nice addition. At first I thought it was too much but it really wasn't - after it's fried it's not as potent. We also threw in some garlic powder into the mustard/egg mixture (if you throw the spices into the potato mixture it will fall to the bottom and never get on the fish). I used tilapia (apparently they dont carry grey sole or any sole for that matter in Virginia) and only needed 2 minutes on each side for a gorgeous golden brown coating.
Made this for dinner tonight. No one really liked it. I am giving it 3 stars because I feel like the blame could be on me, as I tried to make it a bit healthier and baked it rather than fry it. It was really bad. Perhaps the secret is in frying it. I plan to make it again sometime and see if that makes a difference.
I made this recipe for dinner tonight. I used flour instead of potato flakes, becuase I love the way flour tastes when it fries on the fish. And, it turned out great. It was so good and my husband really liked it too. A previou pst said that the potato flakes caused some problems - I suggest using flour instead.
I used orange roughy, Dijon mustard, and Jane's Crazy Mixed Up Salt. I baked it in the oven at 450' and it came out crispy with a very nice flavor.
Good recipe.Hint:if you want coating to stick to fish,dredge in flour before you dip into egg mix.
Great recipe! I used flounder but recipe still worked great. I agree with everyone who said coat the fish in flour before the egg mixture.
Ussually, I'm so-so on fried fish b/c I've had some that were too bland or too "fried" but this was fantastic! Best fried fish I ever had and I will never make it another way again! I only added a dash of salt to the batter and this was perfect. Not a person in the house could remember a time when they had a better fried fish recipe! I can't wait to pass this recipe to my mom. THANK YOU KIMBER for this EASY and GREAT fish recipe!!
Even though I seasoned my garlic instant potato flakes quite heavily, including the addition of parm cheese, this recipe still rates five stars. I floured my tilapia before dipping into the egg mixture which helped the coating to stick. My family flipped over this recipe and my hubby said that the fish was "out of this world"! Nice compliment for both of us Kimber!
