For Breading Mix (Third Pie Plate)

  • 4 slices white bread torn up (3.5 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley minced

For First Pie Plate

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

For Egg Mixture (Second Pie Plate)

  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 pound haddock or cod

For Horseradish Chipotle Sauce

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce


Oven Fried Fish

  • Preheat your oven 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.  Prepare a second baking sheet for the fish by spraying a wire rack with cooking spray and setting it on top of a baking sheet.  Set aside.
  • In a food processor, combine the torn up bread and melted butter.  Pulse until you have small pieces and the bread is coarsely ground.  Place bread crumbs on the prepared baking she and bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until the crumbs are golden brown, rotating during baking if needed.
  • While the bread crumbs are baking, place 1/4 cup of flour in a pie plate.  In a second pie plate whisk together the eggs, mayonnaise, paprika, onion powder, and flour.  When the bread crumbs are done baking, toss them with fresh parsley and place them in the third pie plate.
  • Increase the heat on the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Working in batches of two pieces of fish at a time, coat them in flour, then the egg mixture, then the bread crumb mixture before placing them on the baking prepared wire rack/baking sheet.  Repeat until all the fish is breaded
  • Bake at 425 for 18 to 25 minutes or until the fish reaches an internal temperature of 140 degrees.  

Chipotle Horseradish Sauce

  • Whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, chopped chipotle peppers, and adobo sauce.  This sauce can be prepared the day before and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
