Fish Po Boy
8 small grunt filet or 4 tilapia filet
4 rolls toasted

To cook fish follow instructions below for my perfect fried fish-
2 eggs beaten

Add oil to a deep frying pan or cast iron pan on medium heat and let it heat up to 350 degrees no more than 375 degrees.
Start by mixing the eggs, old bay seasoning and sea salt together in a bowl. Add fish and coat on all sides.
In a separate shallow dish mix well crackers, potato flakes and bread crumbs.
Take your fish out of the egg mixture and tossed gently in the breading and coat well on all sides.
Add to frying oil and fry 7 minutes on first side until breading start to golden a little flip and cook additional 7 minutes. Remove and place on paper towel to drain any excess oil.

  1. Doing this today, just got back from the store with potato flakes. What’s not to like! I only had cod filets in the freezer, so I’m hoping it turns out as good as grunt or tilapia.
