4 8-to-10 ounce fresh or frozen pan-dressed trout, lake perch, or
          other white fish
3/4 cup finely crushed saltine crackers (21 crackers)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon snipped parsley
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 beaten egg
3 to 4 tablespoons shortening or cooking oil
Lemon slices, halved (optional)

Thaw fish, if frozen.  In a shallow bowl, combine the crushed crackers,
grated Parmesan cheese, and snipped parsley.  In another shallow bowl, 
combine the flour and pepper.  Place lemon juice and egg in separate
bowls.  Dip fish in lemon juice, then in flour mixture, then in egg, and
finally in the cracker mixture.

In a 12-inch skillet heat shortening or cooking oil.  Add fish in a single
layer.  Fry over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes or till brown.  Turn fish;
fry for 5 to 7 minutes more or till fish flakes easily when tested with a
fork.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve fish with lemon.  Garnish with
parsley, rosemary, and dill if desired.  Serves 4.
