Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
Cut 10.6 oz fish fillet into pieces about the size of your thumb.

Salt and pepper both sides.

Stage 2 - 2 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
In a bowl, mix 3 tablespoons breadcrumbs with 1 teaspoon flour.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
In another bowl, beat 1 Egg with a fork, until yolk and white are totally mixed.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
Dip fish pieces in beaten egg, remove with a fork to drain them...

Stage 5 - 5 min.

...and roll in breadcrumbs.

Advice: use one fork for the egg bowl, and another for the breadcrumbs bowl, otherwise you will get your fork covered with a sticky mess of egg and crumbs.

Stage 6 - 2 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
Put in the deep fryer, keeping the pieces apart.

Stage 7 - 3 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
Fry for 2 or 3 minutes...

Stage 8 - 20 min.
Crunchy little pieces of fish
...until they are nicely golden.

Drain on absorbant paper, and salt immediately.

Continue like this for all the fish pieces.
The variety of fish does not really matter, whatever you prefere, but it should be fairly thick.

You can dip the fish twice in egg and breadcrumbs if you like a thicker, crunchier crust.

Another possibility: deep a second time in egg and then in seeds like sesame, linseed, poppyseed, etc.
To eat right now.
Home made.
