  • If grilling fish, place over hot grills until brown.
  • If frying the fish, pour the flour into a bowl. In a second bowl, combine milk and eggs. In a third bowl, combine cornmeal, garlic powder, paprika, dried oregano, and salt and pepper. Dredge fillets in flour, then into the egg wash, and finally dip them in the cornmeal mixture.
