Made this for Spring PAC 2013 and what a great choice! I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and otherwise followed the instructions. I didn't spray the dish either and we did/do have enough of the dressing for vegies today. Served with Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits - Copycat#314721, Brown Rice Delight#301516 with a green salad and PaulaG's French-Italian Salad Dressing Mix#94469. Definately will make this fish dish again. Thank you for posting.

We really enjoyed this different breaded fish. You can really taste the onion from the french-fired onions. The coating does have enough fat in it that you don't need to spray your baking dish with cooking spray. The ranch dressing/dip mixture is really good with the fish and any left overs would work great as a veggie dip. I made as posted and served it with some poppy seed noodles and steamed broccoli for a wonderful meal. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
