Healthy Fried Fish.
Sounds like an oxymoron, right?
Although this is in fact a fried dish, I was sure to make this as healthy as possible using a great cooking oil that will not break down at high temperatures. High heat is BAD news for olive oil. Never use EVOO for stir frying or for any other high heat recipes for that matter. If you are unsure about why I use certain oils in some recipes, you can check out this post.
Back to the recipes.
This was not time consuming. Yes, takes a tad bit of prep, but once I got started it was nothing.

- 2 tablespoons grape seed oil
- Mix flour and salt in a bowl or shallow dish.
- In another shallow dish, beat egg and water with fork.
- Place crushed cereal in a third shallow dish.
- Dip fish in flour on both sides. Shake off any excess.
- Next dip floured fish in egg mixture on both sides.
- Repeat with the cereal, coating all sides completely.
- Place coated fish on the side in a plate.
