Breaded Fish with Marinara Sauce

I'm not really sure what to call this- Italian Fish, Fish Parmesan, I don't know. This is one of those dishes that was created using random things in the pantry and fridge. I fried the fish but you could bake it at 350 for 15-20 min. Also, I used crushed corn flakes for the breading but bread crumbs-regular or Panko would work well.

4 fish fillets- Perch, Cod or Tilapia
1 1/2 cups of crushed corn flakes or bread crumbs
1 egg
A splash of milk
1/2 cup of flour
A few teaspoons of Parmesan cheese-optional
Canola oil if you are pan frying
2 cups of marinara sauce

Pat the fish with a few paper towels to remove excess moisture. Use a few plates and a bowl to make an assembly line of flour, the egg and milk mixture(bowl), bread crumbs + parmesan cheese and a plate for the breaded fish waiting to be cooked. Dip fish in flour, egg and then bread crumbs. If pan frying, add an inch of canola oil and cook the fish for about 7 min per side or until golden brown. If using the oven, bake at 350 for 15-20 min. Warm up the marinara sauce in a pan and top fish with sauce. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan sauce if desired.
