  • 1 Tbsp Mrs.Dash Seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper (Optional)
  • 3 Tbsp Mayonnaise

  1. Instructions:

    1.First prep the fish fillets by washing, drying with paper towel and cutting them into any piece size you like. Place the fish in a deep bowl and season with 3/4tsp of salt, 1/8tsp of black pepper (optional), 1Tbsp of Mrs. Dash seasoning and 3Tbsps of mayonnaise. Mix everything together, cover with plastic wrap and leave it out on the counter for at least an hour to absorb the seasonings. (You may put in the fridge overnight and fry next day).

    2.Prepare the coating mix. In a bowl combine 1/2cup of flour and 1/2 cup of plain bread crumbs.

    3. In a separate bowl whisk together 3-4 eggs with a whisk or fork.

    4.Heat a skillet on med/low, add 2Tbsps of Oil, dredge the fish pieces into the dry mix first coating on both sides, then into the eggs coating both sides and onto the pan. Fry until golden brown on both sides.

    We like to eat our fried fish with a slice of bread and sweet onions for some extra vitamins :) Enjoy!
