  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup wild rice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 (5–6-ounce) skinless halibut, hake, or cod fillets
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • Lemon wedges (for serving)
Servings: 4

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add rice and cook, tossing occasionally, until grains have popped open like popcorn and are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels and let cool. Pulse in a food processor or blender to a fine powder.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Beat eggs and 1 tablespoon water in another shallow bowl. Place wild rice powder in a baking dish. Season fish with salt and pepper. Working with 1 fillet at a time, dredge in flour, shaking off excess, then dip into egg mixture, turning to coat evenly. Coat with rice powder, pressing gently to adhere.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high. Cook fish until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to oven and roast fish until just opaque throughout, about 3 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
  1. Wild rice powder can be made 3 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.
