My Crowdtap #TeamTriscuit Recipe

A few days ago I joined the #TeamTriscuit challenge on Crowdtap to make a recipe using Triscuits.  After much deliberation, I decided on a fabulous Triscuit inclusive recipe for fish tacos.

Ingredients For Fish:

1 9 oz. box Cracked Pepper & Olive Oil Triscuits
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
2 lbs. flounder fillets

Directions For Fish:

1. Beat the eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside.

2. Crush Triscuits until they resemble fine crumbs and add to a separate shallow bowl or pie tin.

3. Dip flounder fillet into egg, then press gently into Triscuit crumbs on both sides; set the coated fillet onto a plate. Repeat with remaining fillets. Refrigerate the fillets for about 15 minutes to ensure the crumbs set.

4. Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add flounder fillets, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes with a fork.
