1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons mustard (your favorite; I like 2 T. yellow & 1 T. Dijon)
1 tablespoon milk
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups coarse pretzel crumbs (about 6 ounces pretzels)
1 pound thin fish fillets (flounder, catfish, etc.) oil for frying
Place flour on a plate. Mix egg, mustard, milk and pepper in a shallow dish.
Place pretzel crumbs on a plate. Rinse fish and pat dry. Dip fillets in first in
flour, then mustard mixture, then pretzels to coat completely. Heat oil in a
large heavy frying pan or electric skillet (400 degrees). Fry fish in hot oil
until golden, turning once. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 - 3 servings.
