I don't know how I could have screwed up such an easy recipe but I must have. Not knowing how dry I was suppose to let this get sitting on wax paper I gave it 15 minutes. I did not cover when I tried to bake it. I could not get it crispy or brown. Then I tried to fry it but by this time the fish had turned to mush. I'll try deep frying it next time.
YUm ! This is a recipe that catches you by surprise.. it looks strange to mix what seems like a deep frying batter and then to cook it in the oven, it sounds like it will be flour-y in taste, I wondered if it would really work.. guess what ! It really works! I did add salt and pepper to the batter because DH can't bear fish unsalted but for the rest followed the recipe. I did start to cook this covered but even after almost 15 minutes it didn't seem to be doing much and the fish definiately wasnt cooked while the rest of dinner was heading to the plating-up stage fast so I took the cover off and stuck this closer to the top element in the oven and got a crispy batter and cooked fish in no time. I did have a bit of the problem to get it out of the dish intact, next time I will grease the pan to fix that, DH and I both looked skeptical but a few bites dispelled any doubt, it's really tasty and we were very pleasently surprised indeed. Please see my rating system: an excellent 4 stars for a dish that looks like a bit of a rish but turns out to be a little treasure. And low cal, low fat is the mega added bonus. Thanks!

I live in beautiful San Diego where there's never nothin to do. We almost never have days where you can't get outdoors. For fun I love to read, cook, take road trips with my grandson, whom I raise. Take long walks along the beach, bays and lakes. My live in grandson is 12 and the light of my life. I've been teaching him to fish, or should I say I'm exposing him to lake fishing, the people we meet along the way are teaching him while I read and watch. He's dying to go ocean fishing, that one makes me a bit more nervous, but we'll start that soon, probably from piers to start. Nick's only one of my grandchildren though, I have a total of 13, three live in Kansas, the land of Oz. The last time I visited them, it was Christmas time and when I stepped off the plane, the cold air took my breath away and standing there waiting for me in a short-sleeved T-shirt, was my son-in-law. Needless, to say, I spent many days there staying indoors praying for the day I could get back to sunny California -- I never had to endure snow the whole time, thank God! Twenty degrees daily was way out of my comfort zone by a very large margin. There truly is no place like home. I have 8 other grandchildren that are fortunate enought to live in San Diego too. We spend weekends doing things together such as taking in the zoo, wild animal park, Sea World, Knotts Soak City water park (summer), museums, fishing, picknicking and just hanging out. They all love to help grandma cook in the kitchen. I have many cookbooks and can read them like I'd read a novel. My passions are my family, my two boston terriers, Tuffy and Oreo, and gardening, cooking and reading -- oh yeah, I'm totally addicted to Zaar. I don't really have many pet peeves, but a biggie is mean, obnoxious people and those who think they know it all, and liars, I can pick out a deceitful person it an instant. If you can't trust someone, then nothings worth salvaging in the relationship. I hate those who disrespect the environment (no I'm not a tree hugger) but I do hate to see people litter and fail to do simple things such as picking up after themselves in the outdoors such as parks and beaches, and how easy is it to recycle? It's really not too difficult to make an impact on the environment if everybody takes responsibility for their "trash."
