HealthiFRIED Fish!

I am sorry the posting has been a bit sporadic, my boyfriend came to visit me for a week! He used my blog like a menu and I found myself remaking some of the dishes :) Finals will be over on June 11th, so I will do my best until then… but studying comes first. Unfortunately. Hopefully my grades will reflect that mantra, however I doubt it. My physics and Ochem grades seem impervious to my studying. Tests that I waste my life away studying for will come back dreadful and tests that I was like OH SCREW IT will come back great.

Anywho, on to the grub. Growing up, I loved fried catfish. I still do, and I got a hankering for some today. However, I don’t own a deep fryer (nor do I have the desire to) so I had to healthify the recipe. Not that I’m complaining ;)

Recipe: Serves 1

Crack 1 egg into a bowl and spoon out most of the egg white. Add a dash of garlic powder, salt, and pepper and stir with a fork.

Measure out 1/4 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs and pour onto a large flat plate. Shake the plate to evenly distribute the crumbs.

Turn on the stove to medium heat and spray a pan with canola oil.

Dredge 4 ounces of white fish (I used sole) in the egg. Lay the fish in the bread crumbs. Flip it to the other side. Fill in any missing patches with breadcrumbs.

Lay the fish in the pan and let cook for a couple minutes. Flip to the other side.

Serve with a grain and/or veggie of your choice!

Benefits:

White fish * High in protein in B vitamins and low in fat. Sole is also high in selenium and calcium.

  2. Ochem..gahh good luck with that!
    I switched my blog over to Bluehost which is actually the easiest way to transfer everything over (I just interrupted the process so I made it difficult for myself…typical) lol

    It’s not too expensive on a month-to-month basis but *warning* they charge it all at once. I guess I read over that part too quickly!

  3. Nom nom nom. It might just be the Southern belle in me but fried catfish calls my name every now and then. Thank you for being my mindreader and healthifying it for me. P.S. Physics study sesh? Like every day? Ok good! Thanks for continuing to always have amazing recipes for me :)
