Ingredients
  1. 1 pound white fish (cod, halibut, talapia, etc.)
  2. 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  3. 1 cup flour
  4. 2 teaspoons blackening seasoning (old bay, herb mixes, whatever you like)
  5. 1 egg
  6. salt, pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment
  2. Cut your fish in to strips that are about 4" inches long - you can make them longer or shorter or as fat or thin as you like, just keep the size consistent so they all bake evenly
  3. Set up your three bowls for breading (flour, egg, breadcrumbs). In the first bowl put the flour in and mix in salt, pepper, and half the seasoning. For the second bowl, whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon water. For the third mix pour in the breadcrumbs with the other half of the seasoning mix.
  4. Toss the fish in the flour to coat, then dip the fish in the egg mixture and then after letting the excess egg drip off, place the fish into the breadcrumbs and turn until coated. Place the fish on your baking tray and repeat until all fish is breaded.
  5. Once all fish is done simple bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown.
