This is very tasty, and quick enough for a weeknight. Serve it with fresh fruit and coleslaw on the side for a healthy supper. The recipe is adapted slightly from Cooking Light.

Nice and crispy. A great way to include fish in the family diet. The spices make for flavorful fish. The method of cooking provides for crispiness on the outside while staying flaky and moist on the inside. Thank you!
