It's the fish preparation that I'm reviewing since I made sweet potato rosti #15918 for the chips. I don't know, but it just didn't grab me, DH enjoyed the whole meal, but likely I'll not use this recipe again...because of the bland taste and the coating didn't turn colour, just stayed white, which was unappetizing. The fish was tender, though. Perhaps I will feel challenged to try this again and see if I can improve on what I did. The low-fat oven baking approach still appeals.
