Parmesan breaded fish

Haddock or Cod in Parmesan bread

This is a perfect dish for weekdays in Iceland. You can use any whitefish to make it, but our favourite is Cod or Haddock.

The ingredients to fish in bread

  • 700 gr (25 ounces) Haddock or Cod Fillets
  • 1,5 cups of shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup (250 gr) of breadcrumbs
  • 2 Eggs
  • Milk
  • Flour (just a little to dry up the fish)
  • Lemon pepper
  • Oil and preferably butter for frying

The method

  • Cut the fish into reasonable pieces and pat dry.
  • Prepare 3 shallow dishes, one for a bit of flour, one for the egg mix, and finally, one for the bread crumbs.
  • Whisk the eggs and a little milk together in a shallow dish
  • Mix together 1 cup of Parmesan cheese and 1 cup of breadcrumbs in another shallow dish. (Leave half a cup of the Parmesan for later).
  • Roll one fish piece at a time onto the wheat, the egg mix, and finally, the Parmesan Breadcrumbs.
  • Make sure you cover both sides.
  • Heat up oil and butter on a pan but don’t have the pan too hot.
  • Fry the fish until it’s got that beautiful golden brown colour. This takes about 3-5 minutes.
  • Put the fish into an ovenproof dish, spice with lemon pepper, and put the rest of the Parmesan cheese on top.
  • Put the fish into a 170 C (338 F) degrees hot oven until you see the cheese has started to melt (This takes roughly 7-10 minutes).

After putting the Parmesan breadcrumbs on the fish.

Frying the Parmesan Breaded fish

On the side

I recommend having sliced onions with this dish. Simply put them into a small pot with some butter and kept there until they reach that gold, yellow look. Stir a couple of times.

We usually keep it simple, so we also had potatoes and some salad.
