Ingredients – 1-1/4 cups Panko breadcrumbs – 3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese – 3 tablespoons parsley – 1 egg – 3 tablespoons mayonnaise – 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard – 1 teaspoon garlic powder – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1/2 teaspoon pepper – 1-1/2 pounds fresh or frozen rockfish fillets – Vegetable oil for frying
1. Combine the Panko, Parmesan, and parsley in a wide bowl or a pie dish.
1. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, mayonnaise, Dijon, garlic, salt, and pepper.
1. Add the rockfish fillets to the egg mixture and gently stir to coat the fish.
1. Pick up the fillet pieces one at a time and place in the breadcrumb mixture. Coat both sides of the fish with the breadcrumbs and gently press down on the fillets to get the breadcrumbs to adhere. Repeat with all the fish fillets.
1. Add enough oil to a 12-inch skillet to get it about 1/4 inch deep. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. 2. When the oil is hot (see notes), use tongs to gently add the fish fillets to the pan and cook for 90 seconds to 2 minutes until golden brown. Carefully flip the fish fillets over and cook the other side for another 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
