1/2 cup milk

3/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 tsp salt

Place the flour into another shallow bowl
Combine breadcrumbs and seasonings into a 3rd shallow bowl
Take a few stalks at a time from the cold water (shake off excess water) and coat them in the flour, then into the milk/egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture
Place all the stalks to the side on a plate until you have them all coated
