Crispy-fried Pickerel

1/4 c All-purpose flour
1/4 c Milk
1 Egg
2 c Saltine cracker crumbs
2 lb Pickerel fillets, skinned
Vegetable oil to deep-fry
Salt


Pickerel: a sweet and firm freshwater fish.

Place flour in shallow bowl; in separate shallow bowl, whisk together milk and egg. In another shallow bowl, place cracker crumbs.

Using sharp knife, cut fillets diagonally into 2-inch wide pieces. In deep fryer, heat oil to 375F 190C. Meanwhile, dip fish, 1 slice at a time, into flour, shaking off excess, then into milk mixture, then into cracker crumbs, pressing on both sides to coat thoroughly. Fry a few pieces of fish at a time for 3-4 minutes or until golden and fish rises to top of fryer. Transfer to paper towel-lined platter; sprinkle with salt to taste.
