I like fried fish with a hard, crunchy shell; the texture contrast between the flaky fish and the crunchy crust is what makes the dish for me. Cornmeal provides that shell far better than bread crumbs. It’s also a one-step process—just dump the fish in the dredge and fry. There’s no need to dirty multiple bowls with flour, egg, and bread crumbs.
