Here Fishy, Fishy, Fishy....

I promised some great new (to me anyway) recipes, and albeit late, I am a woman of my word. My aunt recently gave me my belated birthday gifts, two Better Homes and Gardens cookbooks. This recipe comes from the Our Best Recipes book and it is crazy good! The recipe called for four pieces of catfish. But my Price Chopper is very limited and didn't have catfish last week. So I used Tilapia and I would do it again in a heart beat. Mmmmm. I also only cooked two pieces as I am not huge on leftover fish for whatever reason. So I cooked only what I would need.

Catfish (or any white fish) With A Crunch

Start to finish: 25 minutes


* 4 4-oz fresh or frozen catfish fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
* 1 egg
* 3 tbsp Dijon-style mustard
* 1 tbsp milk
* 1/4 tsp pepper
* 1/4 cup all purpose flour
* 1 cup coarsely crushed pretzels
* 2 tbsp cooking oil


* Thaw fish if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. In a shallow dish, combine the egg, Dijon-style mustard, milk and pepper, beating with fork until smooth. Place flour in another shallow dish. Place coarsely crushed pretzels in a third shallow dish.

* Coat each fish fillet with flour. Dip into the mustard mixture, then into the crushed pretzels. In a large skillet, cook fish in hot oil over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden and fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. (Reduce heat as necessary during cooking to prevent overbrowning.) If desired, serve with red onion and lemon slices. Makes 4 servings.

I served my fish over a bed of fresh, baby spinach and other veggie sides. But the fish sort of wilted the spinach- it was really terrific!!
