  • In shallow dish, combine flour, salt, and pepper. Roll fish in mixture to coat. In another dish, combine eggs and milk. Dip fish in milk mixture, then roll in bread crumbs.

  • In a heavy, large skillet, heat 1/2 inch of shortening over medium heat.

  • Fry fish, two at a time, in shortening for 3 to 4 minutes for 1/2-inch-thick fish or for 5 to 6 minutes for 1-inch-thick fish. Turn carefully. Fry until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork (3 to 4 minutes more for 1/2-inch-thick fish and 5 to 6 minutes more for 1-inch-thick fish). Drain on paper towels. Keep warm while frying remaining fish.* Makes 4 servings.

To keep fish warm while frying the remainder, place on an ovenproof platter in a 300 degree F oven.
