I didn't mention the changes to my family because I wanted to see their reactions to it before telling them that the coating was made from pretzels. Everyone ate it without any complaints. My husband did end up telling me that he liked it but that he liked my other fish recipes better. I would say that it's a nice change when the menu gets boring.
1/4 Cup milk
How I made it:
I basically made it per the original directions but I added Creole seasoning to the flour.
Crush pretzels in a plastic bag with a mallet or food processor.
Dip the fish in some seasoned flour (I used some black pepper and Creole spices).
Then dip the fish in an egg/milk mixture (1 egg and 1/4 cup milk whisked together).
Then press the fish in the crushed pretzel mixture until well coated.
Pan fry the fish in a small amount of oil, approximately 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and cooked.
I made a mustard-mayo sauce to go with it.
1/8 C. mayo
1/4 C. grainy brown mustard
5-6 shakes of Tabasco sauce
Stir until well blended.
