Absolutely wonderful! My son would not stop raving about this fish. The coating was cruchy and the fish was moist. My parents came over the next day after I made this fish and it was still crispy. My mother said it was like something from a restaurant. Thank you so much for posting.

This is a wonderful recipe. It was crispy and no fishy flavor. I put it in the oven @ 350 just to make sure it was cooked through for 10 min. Kids didn't even whine that it was fish.
