Toss together breadcrumbs, Cajun seasoning and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the buttermilk. Toss the fish with the flour, shake off the excess, and dip into the egg. Shake off excess egg, and press into breadcrumb mixture. Set aside.
Heat about 3mm of oil in a heavy bottomed frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes per side until the fish flakes easily and has browned nicely.
Didnt find this worked good at all with both the flour, egg and buttermilk. Breadcrumbs didn't stick to the fish like they usually do when i dipp the fish in either milk/ egg or flour mixture. Next time will try just egg and buttermilk before dipping in breadcrumb mixture. I like the idea of the egg and buttermilk mixture. - 04 Jun 2014
