Crispy Fish with Lemon-Dill Sauce

Panko is the secret ingredient that makes these crispy, oven-fried fish fillets a family favorite. The lemon-dill sauce is the perfect compliment and great for dipping. For sustainability reasons, be sure to choose Alaskan cod, or substitute halibut or even tilapia.

Cooking Light OCTOBER 2013

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 2 tablespoons sauce)
  • Hands-on:15 Minutes
  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless cod fillets
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup canola mayonnaise (such as Hellmann's)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped dill pickle
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • Lemon wedges

Preparation

1. Preheat broiler to high.

2. Place egg whites in a shallow dish. Combine panko, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder in a shallow dish. Sprinkle fish evenly with pepper and salt. Dip each fillet in egg white, then dredge in panko mixture; place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

3. Combine mayonnaise, pickle, lemon juice, and dill. Serve with fish and lemon wedges.

Wine note: This dish requires a wine with acidity to cut through the breading and also to act like a final spritz of lemon. Waterbrook 2008 Pinot Gris from Washington state's Columbia Valley ($12) does all that with a touch of fruit. —Sara Schneider
