What is breading?
Breading is a light coating of flour, bread crumbs, or other dry ingredient that is applied to the surface of food before cooking. Breading helps to seal in flavors and prevent sticking. It also adds texture and can help to create a crispier finished product.
Types of breading
Breading fish is a common cooking technique that can be used to create a variety of different dishes. The most common type of breading is made with flour, but other options include cornmeal, bread crumbs, and even potato chips.
When breading fish, it is important to use a light hand so that the breading does not overpower the delicate flavor of the fish. You will also want to make sure that the fish is well coated in the breading before cooking so that it does not stick to the pan.
Here are some tips for how to bread fish:
-Start by heating oil in a shallow dish. You will need enough oil to cover the bottom of the dish and come up about halfway up the sides of the fish.
-Next, add some flour or other breading to a shallow bowl or plate.
-To coat the fish, first dip it in the bowl of flour so that it is well coated. Then, carefully place it in the hot oil. Be sure not to overcrowd the pan so that each piece of fish has enough room to cook evenly.
-Cook the fish for a few minutes on each side, or until it is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels before serving hot with your favorite dipping sauce!
