Entree, Flounder
Spencer oven-fried fish Servings: 4
Estimated cooking time: 10 minutes Posted By: Botumfedur

Found this in my cookbook, a less-oily alternative to frying. I used it for flounder and it came out excellent using this method. It says to follow the instructions exactly for best results.

Spencer oven-fried fish


-------------COPY & PASTE TO NOTEPAD & PRINT--------------

2 pounds fresh fish fillets
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon salt
finely sifted bread crumbs
cooking oil or melted fat

---------------TO MAKE YOUR INGREDIENT LIST----------------

Cut the fillets into portions 3 to a pound. Place them on a plate to the extreme left of your work area. In sequence from there, place a bowl containing the milk, with the salt added, a pan of bread crumbs, and lastly a baking pan.

With your left hand, place a fillet in the milk, then toss it in the pan of bread crumbs. Cover the fillet with crumbs with your right hand, and put the fillet into the baking pan.

This is supposed to keep your left hand for the wet work, and your right hand dry. That's what it says, not my invention, LOL.

Sprinkle each fillet with the oil or fat using a brush, several drops on each fillet. This will be the only oil used for cooking.

Preheat the oven to between 500 and 600 degrees. Bake the fish for 10 minutes. Never add water to fish cooked in this way, and they say if the instructions are followed correctly, the fish will be dry on both sides, and browned evenly.
