My husband hates fish, just about every kind, but he loved this, it has a mild flavor, yet it's delicious. It Originally came from an ad for the Sea Food department in a grocery store, and after a little tweaking I've now got this.

After reading previous reviews, I omitted the lemon completely, and used panko bread crumbs, which are crisp to begin with. I mixed the Old Bay with some other seasonings we like, half and half, and used a flavored lime vinegar. I also used fat free mayonnaise to lower calories. Even my husband, who eats fish under protest, thought it was great. I think leaving out the lemon, using panko crumbs, and using whatever seasonings you like on fish are the keys.

This is a truly delicious recipe. I substituted the vinegar for vermouth (which I learned can be used instead of white wine. It keeps longer and usually costs a lot less).

We would recommend going light on the lemon or skipping it altogether. The bread crumbs were soggy so the elimition of the lemon would help crisp up the bread crumbs. All in all a nice easy dish to make. The Old Bay lovers out there like this one.
