  • oil for frying

  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • ½ (8 ounce) package panko bread crumbs

  • ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs

  • 1 pound halibut, cut into 2-inch squares


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Whisk eggs, milk, and flour together in a shallow bowl. Stir panko bread crumbs and seasoned bread crumbs together in another bowl.

  4. Lower halibut carefully into the hot oil in batches. Fry until golden brown and crisp on the outside, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Repeat with remaining halibut.
