Adapted from Craig Claiborne's Southern Cooking. This is also good when made with other kinds of fish. Don't try to fry them; they'll burn.

Excellent recipe! I used tilapia and instead of putting almonds on top, I ground them and mixed into the cheese-flour mixture. Baking time was perfect and fish stayed very moist. Served with sweet potato "tater tots" for a healthier fish n' chips! Thanks for a keeper.
