  • 1 cup milk 2%, whole, or unflavored non-dairy milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce optional
  • 4 fish fillets 4-6 oz each
  • 5 ounces potato chips any flavor
  • 1 tsp olive or coconut oil


  • Whisk together milk, egg, and hot sauce and add to a zip-top bag or shallow dish. Soak fish in mixture for about 30 minutes.
  • Crush potato chips into crumbs {easiest in a food processor}. Put in a shallow dish.
  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet.
  • Take fish out of milk and let drip dry. Put fish in bowl with chips and press lightly to coat the entire fish in chips. Put coated fish in the hot oil. Repeat with remaining fillets.
  • Flip fish after about 5-7 minutes or when it easily releases from the skillet.


*I like using kettle cooked potato chips. My favorite is Zapp's Cajun Crawtators.
