Cod with Cornflakes Breading

The whole family enjoys this recipe. It’s easy to do & turns out nice & crispy. The cornflakes breading makes a nice change from the usual breadcrumb topping. You can substitute the cod for hake or chicken.

Unfortunately, I don’t have exact measurements for you on this recipe – I take a bit of this & a bit of that & throw it together. Keep your ingredients handy in case you need more of something while you breading the fish.


Cod (or hake or chicken)

Plain Flour

Eggs (2+ depending on how many pieces of fish you are making)


Optional: Salt, Pepper or other seasonings


1.  Take out the ingredients along with three plates & one bowl.

2.  Place some flour on one plate. Crush up the cornflakes & place them on another plate.

3.  Beat the eggs in the bowl.

4.  Remove the skin & bones from the fish & cut to desired sizes. If you are using any seasonings, sprinkle them on the fish now.

5.  You are ready to roll! Place a piece of fish into the plain flour & turn it around to fully coat it in flour. Then dip it into the egg & turn it to coat in egg. Next, place the fish into the cornflakes & turn it to coat in the cornflakes.

6.  Place the finished pieces of fish onto a plate & repeat the same steps until all of the pieces are coated.

7.  I shallow fry the fish in a very small amount of olive oil for a couple of minutes on each side to seal the cornflakes. You could skip this step for a healthier option but it’s not as tasty.

8.  Bake at 180c / 350 f Fan Oven for 20 minutes or until the fish flakes apart with a fork.  Enjoy!

I have no pretty picture of the fish plated up because I forgot – everyone was too hungry & it was gone before I remembered!

Have you ever used cornflakes for a breading? x
