Ah, Tasty Fish Recipe

This recipe was first published in the 2016 edition of the Algoma Travel Guide. The recipe and photos were submitted to us by a resident of Algoma Country, Yvan Breton.

Whether you are pan-frying, oven cooking, or steaming your fish, it’s all good but my favourite recipe is definitely deep-fried fish breaded in cornflake crumbs.



2 – 3 lbs of boneless fish fillets

2 cups of sifted flour

½ tsp of seasoned salt

½ tsp of onion powder

1 tsp of lemon pepper with garlic and onion

2 large eggs

¾ cup of milk

1 ½ – 2 cups of cornflake crumbs (store-bought or make yourself)

2 – 3 Litre of canola or vegetable oil


Mix flour and seasoning and place in a shaker bag or breading bowl. Whisk milk and eggs together and place in a dipping bowl. Place cornflake crumbs in a separate breading bowl.

Rinse fish fillets in cold water and shake off excess water.

Place fillets one at a time in a shaker bag or breading bowl to cover the fish completely with seasoned flour.

Remove from flour and dip in the milk/egg mixture.

Remove and dip fillets again in the cornflake crumbs and cover fish well.

Shake off excess crumbs and place in the deep fryer and cook at 375° F to 400° F for approximately 3 to 4 minutes depending upon the size of the fillets.

Remove from fryer and lay fish on paper towels to absorb excess oil.

Enjoy Mon Ami!
