Have you ever started cooking dinner and realize you are missing a key ingredient? Well, that happened to me today. I had planned on making a traditional breaded fish recipe until I realized I was out of panko crumbs. Moments like this are not uncommon in my kitchen. Instead of panicking I started rummaging through my cupboards to find a suitable substitute. This led me to a wonderful new recipe that I am sharing with you today.
Instead of panko, I crushed corn tortilla chips into crumbs and coated fish strips in them. The results were very tasty and my kids loved them. I used Dover sole because the fillets are thin, cook quickly, and has a mild fish taste. The breading added a little bit of crunch without being overpowering. This is a homemade fast-food dinner because I only needed to broil the fish for a couple of minutes on each side.
Below you’ll find step by step photos to guide you through this recipe. I do hope you’ll try it. It would make a great recipe to prepare with your kids. And you might win them over to a healthier version of traditional deep fried fish. Enjoy!
