    Irmgard's Note:

    The other day, my husband was asking for fish and chips but with my high cholesterol, I have to avoid things like that. I found in a magazine at the doctor's office this recipe for oven fried fish, which is nice and crispy like the deep fried kind but without all the fat. This is excellent served with evelyn/athens' Spicy Oven Fries and your favourite cole slaw recipe.

      Lightly spray or brush rack with vegetable oil.

    8. 8
      In another dish, stir flour with bread crumbs, paprika, cayenne and salt.
    9. 9
      Working with 1 piece of fish at a time, lightly coat with flour mixture.
    10. 10

      Great crunchy fish sticks! The seasoning in the coating was just right and these did come out quite crispy on the outside while still being tender on the inside. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for the Best of 2013 event, recommended by Lavender Lynn

      Yum yum. I was happy to see a healthy "fried" fish recipe and even happier when it worked! I dabbed olive oil over half of the fish and used a few sprays of Pam-type oil over the other half; I thought the olive oil worked best. Thanks for the healthy recipe!
