Fish – Danish style

Fish – Danish style by Carole's Chatter

I got the idea for this Danish style dish off a programme on Food TY - Tareq Taylor's Nordic Cookery.
Of course, I didn't replicate his dish exactly – but it was pretty close.
Fish – Danish style by Carole's Chatter
You cut your white fish up into serving sized portions (I used snapper) and then dip it into a mix of egg yolk and 2 tablespoons of mustard – I used one Hot English and one Dijon.  (Next time I'd be tempted to go for all Hot)
You then coat the egged fish in chickpea flour – Tareq recommended rye flour but I didn't have any.
Then you just sauté your fish as usual in a mix of oil and butter being careful not to overcook it.  I was pleased that the fish wasn't overcooked but still had a nice colour.  The mustard flavour was actually very subtle.

So where in the world is Ankara? 
Ankara is the capital of:

Is this just a food myth?

The theory:  Brown eggs are better for you than white eggs
Are brown eggs healthier or do they taste better?  The experts say that there is no difference in taste or quality.  But because brown eggs sell better you don't see many white ones in the shops. 
Do you have a view on this?
