We made this for dinner the other night. It was very easy to do. I used flounder and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs because that was what I had on hand. My husband said he prefers panko over the regular breadcrumbs. The fish was very good with the lemon and topped with a bit of hot sauce. In the future, I'll stick to frying the potatoes with canola oil like we normally do instead of butter. Definitely something I will be adding into our rotation since we are trying to eat more fish. Thank you!
