In addition, crumbing gives more solidity to fish otherwise too flimsy or foods otherwsie to soft for a regualr saute. . .Fresh crumbs and real butter make all the difference". Crumbing the food: "Wisk together the eggs, oil and salt in a 9-inch pie plate. One at a time, dip first in flour and shake off excess, then in beaten egg and shake of excess. Set in the crumbs, tossing them over the food and patting them in place. Lay each piece as done on a baking sheet covered with wax paper; when all re crumbed, cover and refrigerate 20 minutes or longer, so the crumbs will set".
