This is a traditional New England classic made with the perfect combination of fresh bread crumbs and Ritz crackers for the topping. A little bit of Parmesan adds a great flavor and you wouldn't even be able to guess that it's just doesn't get any better than this. The Ritz keep the topping crunchy and the fish is sweet, savory and oh, soooo delicious. This recipe is the secret combination of how it's done in the restaurants.....In New England that is. Enjoy!
