Baked in the oven, these fillets are almost as good as southern fried without the added oil.
Orange Roughy, Southern Style of Sort
1 to 1 1/2 pounds orange roughy fillets, thawed if frozen
1/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 egg white
1/4 cup panko or plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
1 teaspoon minced fresh basil
Bake fillets at 450° for 8 to 12 minutes depending on thickness, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. I like to squeeze lemon juice over the fish when served.
