Panko Crumb Breaded Fish Filet

Sometimes I make things that are really so simple, they don't seem worth calling a 'recipe' and I have to tell myself that although I feel stupid posting it on the website, it may help someone, somewhere who didn't think about making that particular food.  So, that is what today is.  Today is the "think fish!" day and how simple it is to bread fish with either bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, crushed cereal like corn flakes, crushed pork rinds if you are doing low carb, flour, or as I did in these photos, Panko crumbs.   You can use almost any seasoning as well - even just plain old salt and pepper.  Another option is to bake them on a baking sheet in the oven, or skillet fry them.  So many choices, and every one of them is just as good as the other.

Panko Crumb Breaded Fish Filet

4 fish filets (cod, flounder, tilapia - all affordable options)
Panko crumbs - about 1 1/4 c (seasoned OR plain - and season your own, as I do)
1 t dried oregano
1 t garlic pepper seasoning (or lemon or whatever you wish)
1 - 2 T oil for frying

Bread both sides of moist, thawed fish with the crumbs.  Place in a pan of hot oil.  Fry until golden brown on both sides over medium high.  Serve as is or if you wish; tartar sauce or lemon.  Salt and pepper to taste.
