  • 750 g Fish Fillets cut into chunks
  • 1  Cup Breadcrumbs
  • ½ Cup Cornstarch
  • 2 Eggs
  • ½ - 1 Tsp Paprika 
  • ½ -1  Tsp Ground Black Pepper

Preheat the oven to 400ºF

Season the eggs with the minced garlic, also add a pinch of salt, black pepper and paprika. Stir until the eggs are well beaten and set aside for a minute.

Season the breadcrumbs with the rest of the salt, black pepper and paprika. Stir, taste the flavor, add more seasonings if needed. Set aside for a minute.

Coat the fish chunks with the cornstarch. Tap to remove the excess cornstarch and soak the fish chunks in the egg mixture, make sure they are completely wet with the egg mixture on all sides.  Tap to remove the excess egg, and transfer the fish chunks to the breadcrumbs mixture.  Cover the fish chunks with the breadcrumbs on all sides.

Place the fish pieces onto a baking dish, spray them with cooking spray, and bake at 400ºF for about 8-12 minutes or until golden brown and well cooked.

To serve them as an appetizer, just serve them with your favorite sauce.
Serve them with a salad, to make a very light lunch.
Or you can  also make some great tacos with these, just place them in a tortilla and top them with lettuce and Pico de Gallo.
