Brush baking pan with 2 Tbsp. of olive oil. Preheat oven to 500˚ F with rack in the middle.
Combine panko, cornmeal, and 1 tsp. salt in a large sealable plastic bag and shake to mix.Season fish with salt and pepper on both sides. Working with one piece at a time, dip fish in eggs, letting excess drip off, then put in bag and shake to coat well with crumbs.
