Deep Fried Pan Fish Recipe

I love to fish and the whole family loves to eat them. This time of the year pan fishing is good in our area; and the last fishing trip was no exception, producing a mess off bluegill and crappies. This Deep Fried Pan Fish Recipe has been one of our favorites, the coating is nice and crispy with a golden brown texture. I prepared some homemade baked beans with a side dish of long grain reice with Broccoli and the whole family loved it. The next time you have fresh fish for dinner give this recipe a try; it is very easy to prepare, and the result is a delicious fish fry.

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 30 mins
Serves: 4
  • 4 cups dry potato flakes
  • 2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoon seasoning salt
  • 2 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • 16 bluegill fillets (can also use bass, crappie, or tilapia)
  • Oil (for frying)
  1. Heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees. In a small bowl beat together 4 eggs. In a large bowl combine potato flakes, flour, garlic powder, seasoning salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mix well. (I use a pie plate for the dry mixture and add to it as needed-any left over can be saved for the next fish fry)
  2. Dip fillets into egg mixture and then roll in the potato mixture until evenly coated.
  3. Fry fish fillets in the deep fryer (in batches if necessary) for 5 minutes or until the fish flakes apart easily and is golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
