20 Minute Crispy Fish and Peppers


1 pound fresh or frozen (thawed) small fish fillets (such as grouper, catfish, or tilapia)

3/4 cup buttermilk

1 egg

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 cup all-purpose flour

3 - 4 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup sliced and/or chopped miniature sweet peppers

1 lemon, cut up


Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.

In a shallow dish, whisk together buttermilk, egg, and Cajun seasoning. Place flour in another shallow dish. Dip fish in buttermilk and flour. Repeat to coat fish twice.

Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add fish to hot oil (working in batches, if necessary). Cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden. Add more oil, if needed. Drain on paper towels.

Drain oil from skillet; wipe clean with paper towel. Add peppers to skillet and cook 2 minutes or until crisp tender.

Serve fish with peppers and lemon. Makes 4 servings.
