"The secret to this recipe is double-dipping the fish fillets," writes Doug Wright of Maize, Kansas.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1-1/2 pounds bluegill or crappie fillets
  • 1/2 cup canola oil, divided

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another bowl, whisk eggs. Dip fillets in eggs, then coat with crumb mixture. Dip again in eggs and crumb mixture.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook fillets in batches in 2 tablespoons oil for 2-3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, adding oil as needed.
