Ingredients:

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (I use Old London plain bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp homemade lemon pepper
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 TBS garlic powder
  • 1 TBS onion powder
  • 1-1/2 lbs bluegill or crappie fillets
  • canola oil for frying

Directions:

PREHEAT oil to 375 degrees.


In a shallow bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the garlic and onion powder. Dip fillets in eggs, then coat with crumb mixture.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and test cook with one fillet before cooking fillets in batches. Fry for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, and is deep golden brown.

Butter sliced Italian bread and brown under the broiler or on the grill; sprinkling with a touch of garlic.


For Sandwich:
Top with lettuce, tomato and tartar sauce.
