    Great and very easy fried fish! The batter was nice and light and the lemon flavor came through nicely. I love the addition of baking soda to the batter mixture. It really makes a difference in the crispiness. I paired this fish with an Australian wine. Thank you! Made for Susie's World Tour 2018 - Austrailia.

    Oh My Gosh, this is a lemon fan's dream. I used a huge pickerel fillet cut in half for two and used half the batter amount. Served with Recipe #428549, home fries and a fresh salad it all made for one wonderful dinner. This recipe is very easy and delivers a delicious result. Made for PAC, Spring 2014

    I cut this recipe down to serve one, and this was really delish! I used freshly caught snapper, and cut it pretty thin. The breading was perfect....not too thick, but very lemony and flavorful. This fish recipe is really easy to make, and took me about 15 minutes total time....not counting the time cleaning the fish! A great dinner for me on a work night. I enjoyed with a garlic rice and a citrusy asparagus side. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag game.
