Lovely crunchy outside and soft & moist inside. I mixed the corn meal with flour & cut the recipe in half. Used about a tablespoon of oil to fry the fish. just 5 minutes each side and it was golden. Served with oven roasted potatoesw, new carrots & steamed broccoli - It doesn't come much better than this thanks Dancer
