Panko is a type of breadcrumb used in Japanese cuisine. It is light and flaky, making a crispy coating when used with fish. You can use Dover sole or any kind of white fish, which children tend to prefer as it has a mild taste – and it cooks in a flash. This is one of my son’s favorite meals! Panko crusted fish

Panko Crusted Dover Sole – serves 4

  • 4 pieces Dover sole (or other white fish)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • salt to taste

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a large frying pan. Meanwhile, dip each piece of fish in the beaten egg and then press into the Panko breadcrumbs until coated. Place the fish in the pan and cook on both sides until golden brown – about 4 minutes per side. Sprinkle with salt to taste.
