...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.

...until they are nicely golden.

Drain on absorbant paper, and salt immediately.

Continue like this for all the fish pieces.

Remarks

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.
