450g firm white fish fillet, skinned
3 tbsp plain flour
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or not
80g fine, fresh white breadcrumbs
2 tbsp sesame seeds,optional
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Cut the fish fillets across their width into thick, finger-like strips, about 2cm wide.
In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour and cayenne with some salt and pepper to season.
Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl.
Mix the breadcrumbs with the sesame seeds in a third bowl or on a plate.
Toss the fish in the flour mixture, then dip each piece first in the beaten egg and then in the breadcrumbs.
Fry in the hot oil until golden brown on both sides..
