In another medium-size bowl whisk eggs.
Cut cod into bite sized pieces.
Dip cod into dry mixture followed by the egg and back into the dry mixture, coating all sides. Repeat until all cod has been coated.
Over medium-high heat, heat up ¼”-½” of oil.
Carefully place cod and allow to cook 3-5 minutes per side. If fish is cut thicker, allow time to cook accordingly.
