    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You really can use any large meaty fillets of fish for this, cod, snapper and tilapia are good. You might want to double this recipe, this is really good!

      1/15/09 Scrumptious! - I have made a few of Kittencal's recipe's and they never disappoint. The batter on this is light and crunchy. The amount is very generous. I halved the recipe and it was still a generous volume of food. Thank you so much for posting, I will be making this again.
