Crispy Fried Petrale – My Kids Favorite!

Crispy Fried Petrale – My Kids Favorite!

If there is ever a dish that my kid begs me to make it would be for this one… It’s super easy and quick to make, plus it tastes incredible!
My Mom used to make this for us when we were kids and I swallowed it down always wanting more! Petrale is a white tender fish, when you fry it it gets moist and flaky!


  • 1 lb fresh Petrale
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (Progresso Italian Style or Gluten Free))
  • 1/4 Tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 lemon


I suggest making this dish with White Jasmin Rice… get your rice on the stove first then start working on your fish! Rice Takes about 30 Minutes…You might want to boil some carrots or steam some zucchini too… Up to you what veggie you like!

Mixing bowl – 1 egg and 1/4 cup of milk – mix it up until evenly blended. Set aside

Clean the fish – rinse under cool waters then lay onto a cutting board with paper towels to dry the fish off. Remove paper towels and take a very sharp knife and cut out the center of the filet where the small bones/spine is this will leave you with two strips of Petrale. Repeat on the remaining fish.

Put the fish in the bowl with the egg mixture, mix and let soak.

Get a large frying pan on the stove put your 1/2 cup vegetable oil and turn the pan on Medium High heat. Get the pan nice and hot so the oil is SUPER HOT. (don’t put the fish in before it’s boiling hot, you’ll have soggy fish!)

Once pan is HOT got to next step

Get a Pie Pan or something flat – Put your breadcrumbs in the pan. Take your egg soaked fish and dip them in the breadcrumbs on both sides then place it in the pan. You should hear and see the fish sizzling. Sprinkle on a little salt and pepper not much just for flavor. Repeat until all of your fish is in the pan.

Cook for 3-5 Minutes then flip over and cook another 3-5 Minutes

By the time you finish cooking your fish your rice should be ready too…

Cut up your lemon in individual slices and squeeze some of the juice onto the fish… So Gooooood!!!
