Pan frying means deffo shallow frying, sometimes when people say 'frying', they mean deep frying.

yes NQC has it pan frying to distinguish from deep-fat frying.

Snobby restaurants and gastropubs use it to mean it hasn't been in a deep fat fryer so they are a cut above an ordinary chippie. And justify a few extra ££££. Usually red mullet or sea bass. But it's still fried, who cares where it's been cooked as long as it tastes good?

oh good, it's not just me then.

they say 'pan fried steak' don't they. Why? Has anyone ever done a deep fried steak?

just poncey imo, not explanatory.
