German Recipe for Fried Fish – Oma's Bratfisch Rezept

Oma Gerhild

by: Gerhild Fulson  /  Cookbook Author, Blogger, German Oma!

This easy recipe for fried fish, aka Bratfisch, is such an easy dinner recipe idea. You'll learn how to fry fish with a crispy coating - a very traditional German meal.

Fish filet recipes abound. This one is quick and easy. You can use almost any kind of fish filet or even a small pan fish for each person, and the resultant crispy coating is not a thick doughy one. It's thin, and crisp, and delicious!

This is done in an "assembly-line" style. Set up three deep plates. In the first, put flour. In the second, beaten eggs. In the third, bread crumbs.

The fish is coated first with flour, dunked in the egg, and then coated with the bread crumbs. Into the fry pan. Finished in about 8 to 10 minutes. Quick dinner :)
