  • Combine parmesan, parsley and breadcrumbs in a medium freezer bag; shake to combine.

  • Whisk egg with a fork in a small bowl; dip fish in egg, allowing excess egg to drip away; place in bag with breadcrumbs to coat; repeat with remaining fish.

  • Heat oil in a medium frying pan over medium high heat; add fish, cook 2-3 minutes per side or until crumbs are golden and fish is cooked through.


    - Uncooked crumbed fish can be frozen for up to 1 month. Simply wrap fish in plastic film then place in a freezer bag; remove excess air from bag and seal with tape; label and freeze.
    - For a family meal, simply double the quantity of ingredients to feed a family of four.
    - Even when fish fillets are labelled ‘boneless’, take care when feeding fish to toddler. When cutting fish into pieces, feel for any bones with your fingertips.
