Fanny Farmer has a basic recipe.

Rinse the fish and pat dry
Drench in flour mixed with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder
Wet with beaten eggs
Drench with corn meal

Fry in oil at 375 deg. About 3 min one side; 2 min the other.

But the flavor is a bit bland. What is the missing spice?

Search on Google turns up these suggestions–

Old Bay Seasoning
Seasoned salt
Cellery seed
Mustard powder

Panko Bread crumbs
Italian seasoned bread crumbs.
Dark beer
