thursday night dinner: fish sandwiches

dear world,

in our household, there is always one weeknight dinner that must be easy to cook and take as little time as possible. we are preparing for a road trip to visit family (leaving town tomorrow!) and tonight is that night for us.

several years ago, i found a simple recipe for pan fried fish sandwiches in cooking light magazine and over the years have modified it to suit our family. the best thing about this recipe is V loves it!

here is a quick, healthy main dish that will satisfy your family, too.

fish sandwiches

ingredients: 4 medium fillets of white fish (i prefer catfish or tilapia), 1/2 cup flour, 1 egg beaten, 1 cup corn flakes (crushed), vegetable oil, , 4 hamburger buns, tartar sauce, salt and pepper

  1. heat oil in a large non-stick skillet on medium-high heat. use enough oil to completely cover the bottom of the pan.
  2. season both side of the fillet with salt and pepper
  3. prepare 3 plates: 1 with flour, a low shallow dish for the egg and one for the corn flakes
  4. coat each fillet with flour and shake off excess
  5. dip each fillet in the beaten egg
  6. coat with crushed corn flakes
  7. helpful tip: i set up a large cooling rack over a plastic cutting board and place each piece of fish on it prior to cooking as well as after cooking. this saves your counter tops from a mess and allows excess oil to drip away before eating.
  8. cook fish about 4 minutes on each side, depending on the size of the fillets
  9. remove to cooling rack
  10. serve on hamburger buns with tartar sauce

we usually eat this with a simple salad or whatever vegetables we have left from the market. i love this for a simple weeknight dinner.
