Breaded shrimp with dipping sauce and dill
5 servings / 40 min

Prep 25 min / Cook 15 min

  • 1 1/4 cup (300 mL) panko bread crumbs or corn flake crumbs
  • 8 oz (250 g) skinless white fish fillets
  • 12 large shrimp, peeled, tails-on if desired
  • 8 sea scallops
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (250 mL) 1% milk
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp (25 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grated orange or lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) freshly squeezed orange or lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) Dijon mustard
  1. Preheat oven to 450 °F (230 °C) with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large dry skillet over medium heat, toast panko crumbs, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a bowl; let cool.
  3. Rinse fish, shrimp and scallops; pat dry. Cut fish into about 3- by 1/2-inch (7.5 by 1 cm) strips. Trim off tough muscle from scallops.
  4. In a shallow bowl, whisk egg with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the milk. Stir 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper into crumbs.
  5. Working in batches, add about 5 pieces of fish and scallops first into egg mixture then add to crumbs and toss to coat. Shake off excess crumbs; place on 1 baking sheet. Repeat with shrimp, placing on second sheet. Discard excess egg and crumbs.
  6. Bake fish and scallops on top rack for 3 minutes; move to lower rack and place shrimp on top rack. Bake both for about 5 minutes or until crisp and fish and seafood are firm and opaque.
  7. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, whisk flour and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper into remaining milk. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, for about 5 minutes or until thickened.
  8. Remove from heat; whisk in zest and juice, dill and mustard. Serve immediately on the side with fish and seafood for dipping.
