Surprise Coated Crisp Fish Filets

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Bergy

Recently Baby Kato published a recipe for Crusty Baked Chicken using potato flakes as the coating and I thought I'll bet this would be great on fish too. From that came this recipe. Thanks Baby Kato--I hope you try this recipe.

Barb the instant mashed potatoes made a wonderful coating for my talapia. I used different seasonings but the potato flakes made all the difference, it browned up so nice and crisp. I may never use cornmeal again. Thanks for a great idea, I would never have thought to use instant potatoes this way. Definitely a keeper!
