What to use instead of egg when I cook fish

Mygranddaughter is allergic to egg.What can I use instead of egg when I 'flour, egg and breadcrumb" fish.Could I use milk instead of egg.All I am needing to do is to use a 'wet' substance to make the breadcrumbs stick to the fish.

I use milk mixed with a little oil.

Try cooking the fish without breadcrumbs.Just heatsome butter in a frying pan over moderate heat, salt the fish, fry it gently until barely opaque.Sprinkle over some finely chopped soft herbs (e.g. tarragon, parsley, dill, marjoram ), serve with some lemon wedges.

Cook her fish in a parcel inthe oven along side the crumbed fish. Season fishwith s&p and herbs. Wrap it in baking paper. Place the fish on top sliced tomatoe and onion and agai cook in baking paper Can use tin foil.in place pf baking paper. Have used this method for guest who is is allergic to egg. Yes they still have chipsas well.
Can lightly brush fish with melted butter or oil and coat fish with breadcrumbs.

Mix cornflour and water to a batter consistency, dip fish into this mixture and then dip into breadcrumbs.Is crispier than using egg and cheaper too.

I use only breadcrumbs. They seem to stick okay as the fish is aleady wet.

Buttermilk, then Panko breadcrumbs.or seasoned flour, and pan-fry.oven-baked parcels.steamed in a little milk in the microwave (delicious).there's heaps of options.
