Breaded Pan Fried Halibut Recipe
A crunchy breaded halibut recipe that is easy to prepare and is so delicious.
4 halibut fillets
salt and pepper
1/2 cup vegetable oil (for frying)
2 small eggs
1 lemon, juiced
2 pieces basil, chopped
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
Rinse halibut fillets under fresh cool water.
Pat very dry with paper towel. * Dry fish is much easier to bread.
Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.
Prepare 3 separate shallow bowls.
In the first bowl, beat together 2 small eggs with the juice of 1/2 lemon. Mix basil into egg mixture.
In your second bowl, place 1/4 cup flour.
In your third bowl, place your panko crumbs.
Heat large frying pan (so the fish does not crowd) with 1/2 cup oil.
Dip fish fillet into flour first, then egg mixture and then the panko crumbs.
Coat each fillet well on both sides and then add to the hot frying pan.
Fry until both sides are browned.
Sprinkle with remaining lemon juice before serving.
