View Full Version : Crunchy oven fried perch

I made this tonight and got a request for the recipe, so I thought I'd put it here. It's pretty simple, though this is as close as I can get it, since I rarely actually work from recipes. It actually works well with any whitefish, I also do this with Tilapia.

For every pound of fish, you'll need:
1/4C breadcrumbs
1/4C grated parmesan cheese
1/4C all purpose flour
1/4C milk
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp dried dill

Optional: garlic powder, whatever other seasonings you like

Put milk in a shallow dish. Put flour in a second shallow dish. Mix breadcrumbs, cheese, and spices in a third.

Dip filets in milk, then in flour. Dip in milk, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Place on an oiled/buttered/whatever baking sheet, set oven to 450F and put in center oven rack. Bake uncovered for about 6 minutes per half inch of filet thickness or until it's as done as you like.

1 serving is about 4oz. Macros will change a bit depending on what specific ingredients you use but my rough calculations are:

240 cal
10g fat (5g saturated)
25g protein
13g carbs

This is great on its own or goes well with a lemon mayonnaise or herb butter sauce.

They keep reasonably well. They're obviously not real crunchy once they're stored, but they're not bad. Most leftovers I eat cold, but they're pretty good reheated.

Yes, yes it does. I'm actually probably going to be doing that one day this week, I think.
