Cooking Time: 15 min

A crispy coating and a zippy sauce make for a fun fish and seafood meal.


1 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs or corn flake crumbs 300 ml
8 oz skinless white fish fillets 250 g
12 large shrimp, peeled, tails-on if desired 12
sea scallops
1 cup milk 250 ml
  Pepper, to taste  
2 tbsp all-purpose flour 25 ml
2 tsp grated orange or lemon zest 10 ml
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange or lemon juice 50 ml
1 tbsp chopped fresh dill 15 ml
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard 2 ml


Step 1
Preheat oven to 450 °F (230 °C) with racks in upper and lower thirds. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 4
In a shallow bowl, whisk egg with 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the milk. Stir 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper into crumbs.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 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.

Step 8
Remove from heat; whisk in zest and juice, dill and mustard. Serve immediately on the side with fish and seafood for dipping.
