    nsomniak6's Note:

    Quick, easy and quite nice. I usually put the fillets over mashed potatoes and to make it super quick I prepare the frozen mashed potatoes, but of course homemade are much better. I usually side this with sauteed spinach or summer squash.

      loved it. I did not have dried parsley but used Italian spices in the plain breadcrumbs. Turned out very well and quite delicious.
