Invent Your Recipe:

In this recipe, pan fried salmon bites, I choose to use plain breadcrumbs because they are finer then seasoned bread crumbs or panko breadcrumbs. I find that if I add my own seasoning to plain bread crumbs they are still finer than the other two types of breadcrumbs. In addition, the plain breadcrumbs fry up so nicely. It provides a crunchy exterior, but does not overpower the delicate fish inside.

If you like this recipe, pan fried salmon bites, I would recommend trying it with other cuts of fish. Also, you could play around with the coating as well. Try panko breadcrumbs, crushed up corn flakes, corn meal, or even just flour.
