I use crushed saltines with a bit of flour and lemon pepper mixed in. Dip the fillet in egg, then the cracker mix, fry and enjoy.

I agree with Fitgers, not sure crushing them alone will be fine enough, some flour, maybe cornmeal, or fine bread crumbs, plus whateve spices you want. Put in bag, add crushed saltines to the mix in whatever quantities you like when ready at lunch time. Gooooooooooooood eats.
quote timatkn: "I like panko bread crumbs myself but yeah saltines or any cracker can work.
I've done both panko and saltines - pretty much prefer the panko now.
We dredge in seasoned flour, then dip into an egg/milk mix (both from powedered versions) then roll in the breading. The trick is to get the egg/milk to the right consistency so the breading stays on well but you aren't making a batter out of it all.

with saltines dont add anymore salt till you taste it, crushed up ritz are good also, one of my favorites is potatoe flakes(add garlic powder-lawrys- crushed whole black pepper) potatoe flakes are AWESOME on sunnies ! word

I agree! They saved my life once... stuck in a car that was buried in the snow in a ditch during a blizzard... nothing to eat but Chicken in a Biscuit... by the time we were rescued we were down to our last cracker.
OK, it was only 6 hours stuck in the freezing cold but we were college aged girls and sure we were going to die :-)
I have had a soft spot in my heart for those crackers ever since!
