Egg an Flour Pan Fried Fish Recipe

This recipe makes pan fried fish with a beautiful golden-brown coating.  Making this yummy fish is really easy!

Fish fillets are first coated in egg, then coated with flour, then fried on a frying pan.  The resulting fried fish has a delicious crispy coating on the outside and juicy succulent fish on the inside.

This fish is more tender and juicy than regular pan-fried fish because the coating seals in the fish juices.    Egg and flour coating protects the fish from drying out and creates a very tasty crust!

Egg and Flour Fish

You can serve this delicious fish with rice, potatoes or salad.  Or try serving it with chips for exciting “fish n’ chips” dinner!

Enjoy your fish fried in egg and four coating piping hot!  This pan fried fish goes really well with the store-bought bottle of tartar sauce!

Course: Fish
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 servings



  • In a bowl, whisk the egg. Put the flour on a large plate.
  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Dip each fish fillet in the egg on both sides, then put the fish fillet on the plate with flour. The flour will stick to one side of the fish, then flip the fish so the flour sticks to the other side of the fish.
  • Put the fish coated with egg and flour on the frying pan. Sprinkle the fish with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper. Cook for 4 minutes, then flip the fish to the other side. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp of pepper. Cook for another 4 minutes, then remove from heat and serve.

  1. I love the crispy fish. I dipped it in flour before the egg and also after…made it super crispy. I called them fish nuggets and my 2 year old grandaughter was happy to eat them

  2. 5 stars
    Perfect. My dearly departed mother cooked her fish with flour so I used your recipe which I am sure is very similar to hers. As she got older, always the “try something new girl,” ma would split the mixture with half cornmeal to half flour that worked well, too.

  3. 5 stars
    Definitely 5 stars! I hate to cook but have been trying lately — ONLY easy, quick, and mostly ingredients in my pantry. This recipe checked all the essential boxes and was delicious! Everyone loved it. Crispy, healthy (pretty much) and not too much effort for someone like me. I’m going to try the simple fried chicken recipe, too!
