    Stacky5's Note:

    This is not very fancy, but it sure does taste good! It's what I came up with after my kids refused to eat fish sticks and frozen breaded fish filets...I've tried it with fresh bass and perch, but my favorite is made with Orange Roughy (less fishy-tasting and economical, I think...) NOTE: 60 minutes of the prep time is 60 minutes of marinating time.

      An interesting and different way ti prepare fish. If you are feeding children or those who don't like spicy things, you might want to cut back on the peppers.

      I found this recipe to be easy and very good. I did make a few changes and that was not to add the salt and I used cheeze-its instead of the nips but since there is salt on the crackers I thought it would be best to not add more. I also didn't have parsley and I was a little leary in making it without but I had everything else and went for it. I certainly didn't miss the parsley but next time I make it I will try it with the parsley. I've already added this to my "Cookbook". Thanks!

      My DH & I eat fish 3-4 nights a week so I'm always on the search for new ways to prepare. This recipe was DELICIOUS! I skipped the marinade all together and as we have to follow a lower sodium diet I skipped the salt and used just enough cheese crackers to put a decent coating on each piece of fish. Baked as directed as it was absolutely YUMMY! Definitely will be added to my line up for regular use.
