459 people made this

IngredientsServes: 4

  • 800g fish fillets
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 150g breadcrumbs
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 30g butter

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:6min ›Ready in:21min

  1. Rinse fish fillets, pat dry and cut into 4 portions. Drizzle the juice of half a lemon over the fish.
  2. Prepare three deep plates for the breading: put the flour in the first, the lightly beaten eggs in the second, and the breadcrumbs in the third. Pat the fish fillets dry again and season with salt and pepper. Dip the fish fillets in the flour and gently tap off the excess. Dip into the beaten eggs, allowing the excess to drip off, and then into the breadcrumbs (pressing down gently).
  3. Heat the butter in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat and put in the fish fillets. Fry on each side for 2-3 minutes. Carefully turn so they do not fall apart. The best way is to use two spatulas.
  4. Cut the other half of the lemon into 4 slices and use to decorate the fish. Serve with potatoes and a salad.

great, add a bit of garlic to the egg mix to give extra flavour. Add a bit of mild olive oil to butter to stop it from burning. Good with home made potato wedges and peas cooked, leave a bit of water and then puree with a spring onion and touch of garlic.-17 Jan 2018

Easy dish to prepare & have done it a couple of times now. Tastes divine. I also put some dried herbs in with the breadcrumbs which adds to the flavour. We have it with chunky oven baked chips and petit pois-19 Oct 2017

Baked Fish with Savory Bread Crumbs

&ldquoLandlocked Umbria does not have a seafood cuisine,&rdquo writes Lidia Matticchio Bastianich in Lidia Cooks From the Heart of Italy. &ldquoBut its mountain lakes, rivers, and streams abound in freshwater fish, such as the tasty tench. This simple preparation is one I found in Umbria, and it is excellent for fillets of our sweet-water varieties, such as carp or whitefish, or even light ocean-fish fillets like sole.&rdquo


  • 2 pounds whitefish fillets
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of a large lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 6 plump garlic cloves, crushed and peeled
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • Zest of a large lemon (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon peperoncino flakes, or to taste, chopped fine
  • Fresh lemon slices, for serving


Lightly salt the fish on both sides, using about 1/4 teaspoon salt in all. Pour 3 tablespoons of the olive oil, the lemon juice, white wine, and another 1/4 teaspoon salt into the baking dish, and whisk together well. Drop in the garlic cloves, and stir with the dressing. Lay the fillets in the dish, turn and swish them in the dressing so both sides are thoroughly moistened, and arrange them, skin side down, in one layer.

Toss the bread crumbs in a bowl with the lemon zest, parsley, oregano, chopped peperoncino, and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Drizzle with the remaining 3 tablespoons olive oil, and toss the crumbs well until evenly moistened with oil.

Spoon the seasoned bread crumbs on top of the fillets in a light, even layer. Bake, uncovered, until the crumbs are crisp and golden and the fish is cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Lift the fish out with a spatula, and set on a warm platter to serve family-style, or on individual plates. Spoon over it the juices left in the baking dish, and serve right away, with lemon slices on the side.

Parmesan Crusted Baked Fish

This flavorful and filling fish fillet recipe might earn a spot in your weekly rotation because of its ease and convenience. Baked in the oven, these delicious and golden fish fillets are the perfect dinner alongside simple side dishes—think roasted potatoes and broccoli rabe—and a tangy rémoulade sauce or tartar sauce.

The baked fish develops a tender, crunchy crust, thanks to the coatings of milk and a mixture of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. This recipe is an easy blueprint for making your own variations, such as adding dried herbs or spices to the breadcrumb mixture before baking.

Choose any fish of your liking, but we recommend a firm fish like tilapia, haddock, cod, bass, or swordfish—just be mindful that while 145 F is the minimum recommended temperature for eating fish and seafood safely, the cooking time might vary depending on how thick the fillets are. Use frozen and thawed fillets or any fresh fish that's available. Although salmon and trout are delicious, this Parmesan crust is best when used on milder white fish.

Sauces for fish

With well seasoned crispy skin and juicy flesh inside, I don’t need anything more than a squeeze of fresh lemon. But I am a sauce person, so I never turn down a sauce even for fish! Here are my favourite Sauces for Fish:

Lemon Butter Sauce for fish – this is an absolute ripper. Totally restaurant worthy, 2 ingredients, the secret is to brown the butter

Creamy Dill Sauce – traditionally thought of for salmon but equally good with other fish

Cocktail Sauce, Marie Rose Sauce, or Tartare Sauce – recipe in this Prawn Dipping Sauces post

Lemon Cream Sauce (see recipe notes)- A richer cream sauce with lemon

Simple Lemon Butter Sauce* cooked with the pictured Asparagus, Peas and Beans, as pictured. It’s really good!

The one catch with Crispy Pan Fried Fish is that it doesn’t stay crispy for that long. Once the fish cools, the surface loses crispiness. So eat it fresh off the stove! – Nagi xx

Try these on the side:

Cauliflower Cheese – A rich, creamy, cheesy and rib-sticking British classic

Paris Mash – For a true fine dining experience! Tip: It’s so soft and creamy, it is practically a sauce in itself.

I made this for 2 of us with fresh Petrale Sole - SOOO good! and easy. I used jarred roasted red peppers to a weight of 8 ounces, processed and well drained. I also used Italian panko for the breadcrumbs. Comes together quickly for a great and special weeknight dinner.

This dish is very tasty and a welcome change from the usual methods of preparing fish. I took many other reviewers' suggestions into account. For blandness I added extra cayenne. I also put the salt and pepper directly onto the filets, rather than adding it to the flour. As is my custom, I used Panko for the breading. One reviewer used cilantro instead of chives -- so I used both. But I thought that the cilantro didn't go well with the dish and will use only chives in future when making this dish.

Really good, in large part because the flounder was fresh from the farmer's market. I used some old challah to make the bread crumbs, which I've never tried before but worked great. Didn't have any red bell pepper but the mayo was still very tasty.

This was the ultimate in bland. I made the mayo with roasted peppers and the rest as written. The fish was crispy and cooked fine but again, tasteless. It was like dipping someting void of flavour in to a mayo jar. Threw it out. No family members liked it.

I made changes suggested in other reviews panko, roasted red peppee and also used cilantro instead of chives in sauce. There is lots of sauce left over but I'm sure I'll find some use for it. -)

I made this and it was wonderful. What is even better, the leftover fish reheated wonderfully in the toaster oven (minus the mayo.) The was easily as good as the day originally fried. the panko did it, I think. For the red pepper mayo, I processed most of a 7.25 jar of roasted red peppers, and then proceeded as written, with the addition of one minced garlic clove. I used some of the mayo on black bean "steaks" from Costco, and everyone loved them. Try it!

Although I found this to be acceptable, my family was not real impressed-especially after the other reviews-we found this recipe tasteless-maybe I should have added more cayenne pepper to add flavor-I made the recipe as stated-I also used tilapia

Like others, I roasted the red pepper and peeled it. I can't imagine the recipe would be as good with an unroasted pepper, and why would you drain it. A fantastic and easy meal.

I made this with roasted red peppers w/low fat mayo, panko breadcrumbs, olive oil and just a bit of butter as a low-fat alternative. The red pepper sauce has a great flavor paired with the fish! Definitely a keeper

Delicious! This recipe is definately a keeper. The longer the mayo sits in the fridge, the better. Served with mashed potatoes and asparagus not one bit of fish was left! Used the left- over mayo to make a tuna salad sandwich- loved it!

This was a very easy and delicious dish to prepare, great for company or after work on a week night. Loved it!!

The fish was excellent. I did run out of the egg wash so I will double that for next time. I also made the mayo with artichokes as another reviewer suggested.

What I did differently - used low fat mayo, roasted red peppers, no chives but minced garlic instead - delicious sauce. I used tilapia and the only thing different with the fish, was to use panko crispy bread crumbs. Overall the dish was very good and I would use for company.

love it. Pepper Mayonnaise was delicious! The receipe is now in my recipe box!

Delicious! A very good weeknight meal. This can be done in under 20 minutes. I steamed some asparagus to go with it. Had extra red pepper mayo and used if for grilled chicken sandwiches the next day.

This is a really nice way to do sole. I didn't have a red bell pepper on hand, nor any jarred. But I did use a jar of marinated artichoke hearts instead, and that worked great. Try it!

I also used very very thin filets of flounder. I used regular bread crumbs with a few spices mixed in. I wish I would have used panko. I found the sauce to be amazing, but as with all mayo sauces. it needs time to set. When I first made it, it tasted like flavored mayo. 30 minutes later, much better. next day, fantastic. Make it early, you will not regret it. Also, I used roasted bell peppers. really made a nice touch to the sauce.

Fabulous with Panko bread crumbs. So crunchy. I'm sure it would be good with regular crumbs. I also thinly spread some sour cream on the fish before dipping into flour to get rid of the fishiness. I used flounder fillets that were cut very thin. A bit thinner than Iɽ prefer. I could care less about the sauce after I used the panko crumbs. I put spices in the egg mixture. A teeny tiny bit of Cayenne pepper in the egg batter. I didn't have chives, only parsley, so the sauce wasn't exact. Lemon wedges helped. I'll probably make this again Tuesday or Weds. Served with steamed Fennel & Shitake mushrooms, and butter & Salt.

We used ling cod and it was great with the fresh breadcrumbs. The red pepper mayonnaise was okay and added to the 'look', but the fish would be fine with just lemon wedges.

I made this with panko instead of fresh breadcrumbs and it was the most perfect crust ever!! The mayo was great on the fish!

My family really likes this! We will make again!

Absolutely fabulous. The red pepper mayonnaise is a great compliment to the fish. I paired it with baked asparagus that was seasoned with olive oil and italian seasoning and it went perfect. Definitely making it again

Absolutely fabulous. The Mayo makes this dish. So fantastic it is my new dish to serve to company. I only had Panko and this made the fish super crispy!

Simmered Breaded Swai Fillets

These seasoned and breaded swai fish fillets are seared on each side then covered with an amazingly delicious vegetable sauté and water. The fillets are then simmered on the stove top over low heat and the results turn out to be creamy, delicate and so full of flavor. I could eat these fillets, hot or cold there so good!

They somewhat remind me of canned fish but so much better in taste! I love how creamy the fillets turn out to be since they were breaded and simmered in some liquid. The ketchup for the sauté mixture balances out the sweet caramelized onions so perfectly so don&rsquot worry you won&rsquot be able to detect any ketchup. I really hope you may try this delicious stove top version because this fish recipe is incredibly delicious! A big thanks to my wonderful aunt who shared the recipe with me:)

5. Heat 4 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the breaded fish fillets. Fry on each side until golden (2-3 min for each side.)

6. Remove fillets and wipe clean the pan with a paper towel. Add 5 tbsp of oil to the pan and fry the carrots and onion until soft and reduced much in size (10 min.) Add 3 tbsp of ketchup and sauté an additional 2 minutes. Set aside.

7. Place 2 tbsp of the sauté mixture onto the bottom of a small sauce pan. Then place 2 fillets over the sauté mixture and cover with 3 heaping tbsp of the sauté mixture. Repeat ending with the sauté mixture. Pour 1/2 of water over the top and bring to a boil over medium heat.

8.) Once mixture comes to a light boil reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer fillets for 15 minutes, covered.
