What do you put on fish before frying?
Coat fish in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs. Gently set coated fish into hot oil and fry 5 minutes on each side until medium golden brown in color. When the fish is evenly golden all over, remove and drain on brown paper sacks.
Should I season my fish before frying?
Don’t skimp on seasoning.
Season both sides of the fish (since the salt doesn’t get absorbed after frying) and drizzle the filet with olive oil (don’t be afraid to keep adding more!), continuing to season with salt and pepper along every step of the way.
What can you add to fish for flavor?
There are many ways to enhance its flavor, however, with fresh herbs like thyme or tarragon, or a marinade of soy sauce, spices and ginger. In the winter, a freshwater fish like whitefish is good seasoned with mustard, lemon and garlic and baked in the oven.
