From Every Day With Rachael Ray


  1. 1 cup oyster crackers
    1/3 cup Ritz crackers (a generous handful)
    3/4 cup parmigiano-reggiano cheese
    1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
    3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
    2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
    1 tablespoon Old Bay seasoning
    1 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic (optional)
    Flour, for coating
    2 large eggs, beaten
    Splash heavy cream or half-and-half
    Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), for frying
    4 sole or tilapia fillets, rinsed and patted dry
    Salt and pepper
    Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Using a food processor, grind the oyster crackers, Ritz crackers, parmigiano-reggiano, parsley, chives, thyme, Old Bay seasoning and garlic powder, if using. Transfer to a shallow bowl. Place the flour in another shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, beat the eggs and cream.
  2. Fill a large skillet with enough EVOO to reach a depth of 1/4 inch and heat over medium-high heat. Preheat the oven to 200°. Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper. Coat the fish with the flour, shaking off any excess; coat with the egg mixture, then with the cracker crumbs. Working with 2 fillets at a time, fry the fish in the skillet, turning once, until deep golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer each batch to the oven to keep warm.
    1. Serves 4.
