Yesterday I made fresh link cod. We got a large one from our friend that goes out fishing almost every day.
Here is a picture of it in the sink waiting to be filleted by my husband.
We made a deal with each other. We would take a whole fish, if my husband would process it, and I would cook it. We decided to make fish nuggets.
I made a bowl of milk and eggs, and another of a lot of Italian breadcrumbs. I got the plate of fish fillets from my husband and got to work. I had a really hard time getting my oil to temperature to fry them right. I wanted a consistent 375 degrees like I make for my fried chicken. Since the fish looked a whole lot like chicken breasts to me, I treated them as such.
As soon as I had my oil right, I made them one or two at a time and just browning them on the outside nice and golden. I dipped them into the milk-egg first and then the Italian breadcrumbs, then fried.
Here are a few pictures of the process and results. I also made some fresh steamed spinach, with some roasted garlic.
My husband also made his famous corn bread. So we had fresh fish nuggets, corn bread and spinach. It was a great local dinner.
