Not My Mom's Fried Fish


  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 ½ Cups crushed saltine crackers (approx 45 crackers)
  • 2 lbs Fish fillets (½ inch thick)
  • Vegatable oil (for frying)


  1. Place beaten eggs and saltine cracker crumbs in separate shallow bowls or pie tins.

  2. Dip fillets into eggs, then coat with crumbs; let stand for 5 minutes.

  3. In a heavy, deep skillet, or electric frying pan, heat oil (about 3/4 to 1 inch of oil) to 375°. Fry fillets, a few at a time, for 2 minutes on each side or until fish is golden brown and flakes easily (I found that when the fish is golden brown it's DONE).

  4. Drain on a rack over paper towels. If you're making lots of fish place the rack in a 225° oven while you're cooking the remaining batches.
