You can use about 1 tablespoon fresh dill in place of the dried if desired. I add in about 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb mixture but that is optional. This is also good with other meaty fish fillets too! Double the recipe for more than 4 fillets.

Yes, loved it !! Delish ! Will make again....I added a bit of Smoked Paprika...also used Greek yogurt instead of Mayo...for health reasons. All the same, wouldn't of put it together this way without this recipe. Thank you !
