600 - 700 gm (1 and 1/2 pounds) white fish fillets
2 cups of cornflakes
3 tablespoons of sesame seeds
1 teaspoon of dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon of dried tarragon (if you like it)
1 teaspoon dried mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup plain flour
Oil for shallow frying
Place cornflakes, sesame seeds, herbs, mustard, salt and pepper in a food processor and make fine crumbs. Coat fish in flour, then in egg and then in the crumb mixture.
Shallow fry in a small amount of oil, turning the fish half way through cooking.
If preferred, you can place these fillets on a baking tray and cook in the oven on 180 degrees for about 15 minutes. Coating the crumbed fish with a film of spray cooking oil is optional.
Seafood contains all nine essential amino acids. The protein in seafood is more readily broken down and absorbed than the protein in red meats and poultry. Most nutrition researchers now say that eating seafood once or twice a week may be beneficial in preventing coronary heart disease. Fish is full of protein but low in calories and low in fat, particularly saturated fat.
