Crusty Oven-Fried Fish

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bungy

The fish in this recipe is actually fried in oil in the oven - it is not a low-fat alternative! The flavour and crunch are perfect. The recipe came from the March 08 copy of recipes+ magazine.

DELICIOUS-I loved the flavor w/ the parm and oregano!!! I cheated, too, because at the last minute it was just going to be girls for dinner. I lined a bake sheet w/ foil and included a rack which I sprayed w/ oil, followed recipe and then sprayed fish with oil. Baked at 500F on top rack for 6 minutes. (Next time I will try the full fry method because my Dad loves fried fish but I hate to fry on the stove-top!) Thank you, Bungy, for a great recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008.
