    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This is a good choice for a no fuss fish dinner when you have been "surprised" by a family member's catch of the day and don't really know what to do with it. This also works well when buying "whichever" fish fillets are "on sale this week." :) You get to choose the type of fish here - although try to keep to a similar type (small, fairly flat,boned,skinless fillets of white fleshed fish - such as catfish,red snapper, tilapia,roughy, trout, etc). Adapted from Taste of Home "Country Cooking." Prep time allows for boning & cleaning the fillets and will be less if you are using fillets from the fish market.

      I made this exactly to recipe except that I didn't have fresh parsley so I used about 1 tsp. of dried parsley. It was fantastic! This one will stay in my cookbook!

      This is a really great broiled fish recipe. I made this with walleye fillets and used less butter, about half, than the recipe called for...just to cut down on calories a bit. The flour gives a nice little crustiness to the surface and the added lemon at serving time was perfect. I'm going to have to memorize this recipe, or carry a copy in my back pocket, as my husband is always bringing home different kinds of fish that he's caught. Thanks for the great recipe Heather!
