Something crumbed used to be on our menu every week. Either that, or Chicken schnitzels. Mr. P and the kids never tire of it. But I guess I did...and since I am cooking....But tonight I did feel like fish and I remembered the Flathead tails in the freezer. And I remembered that recipe that I always wanted to try but never did. The one that used popcorn instead of breadcrumbs. So here we go.
It is simply a matter of replacing the breadcrumbs with popcorn. You put 2 cups of fresh popcorn into a mixer and whizz it for a minute or two until it resembles crumbs. Add some grated parmesan and some salt and pepper, then proceed like usual with your flour and egg wash.
The result is still a crispy coating but a bit lighter I find. I oven baked some chips, steamed broccoli and corn and everybody cheered and life was good!
I went to the gym and missed out on dinner .....
