Fish fry is a classic comfort and around the Mr. Food Test Kitchen it's always a hit. This Crunchy Potato Fish Fry will be a hit around your kitchen, too!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (2-ounce) envelope instant mashed potato granules
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (24-ounce) package or 2 (12-ounce) packages frozen fish fillets, thawed
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • Lemon wedges (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Combine potato granules and sesame seeds in a large shallow dish.

  2. Combine egg and next 3 ingredients; stir well. Dip fish in egg mixture, and dredge in potato mixture.

Instant mashed potatoes are the secret to our crunchy coating for fish. Look for frozen fish fillets such as whiting, Pollock, ocean perch, or cod in your grocer's freezer section.
