Herbed Fish

This was quick and easy and tasty too.

1 lb fish fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1/2 flour
1/4 cup Italian crumbs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg

Cut fish into 4 serving pieces. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat.

In small shallow dish, mix flour, bread crumbs, basil and salt.

In another shallow dish, beat egg. Dip fish into egg, then coat with flour mixture.

Reduce heat to medium-low. Cook fish in oil 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until fish flakes easily with fork and is brown on both sides.

Sprinkle with lemon juice.

Did I change anything? I added the lemon juice part of the recipe and the recipe also said that your should used Bisquick instead of flour, but I didn’t have any Bisquick so I used flour. Also, I used sole. One pound of sole is a lot of sole. LOTS! Next time I will either get a thicker cut of fish or less sole.

What did the family think? Hubby and I liked it. Our oldest tried it, but was not impressed. The youngest stuck with fish sticks.
