Nice surprise

After reading the reviews on this recipe, I decided to try it and I am repeating what most others say. Delicious! I added some lemon juice...just a wonderful change in baking fish.

This is one of the BEST recipes I have ever tasted for an oven fried fish!!! I did, however, cut back on the flour and add more corn meal, as I wanted the more corn meal-y taste. I also sprayed some cooking spray on top of the fillets during cooking to help them to crisp up on the top. Made up some tartar sauce... could've been eating it at a restaurant!!!!!! Truly tasted like "fried fish"!!!!!

Really good. I had my grandchildren over for dinner so I cut the fish into bite size pieces and made "fish nuggets". It was a hit.


Great Dish!

this recipe came out great!! follow the directions to a tee and it will be an excellent dish! My 3 yr old was asking for more!

Mine looked nothing like the picture. The covering was dry and it all didn't cook right. Might have put to much in that area. Not sure why the coating wasnt' as thick or crunchy. Everyone peeled of the coating and then ate the fish.
