Try these with any white fish fillets: mahi mahi, tilapia, perch, cod, etc.

This spicy, crispy and flaky fried fish was a hit at my dinner table! I served it on a bed of rice, a twist of lemon and a side of seasoned broccoli. I seasoned with Cajun seasonings and it was the perfect meal.

I did fry over a med/high heat (this wasn't indicated in the recipe) and I added the fish fillets only after the butter and pan were hot enough to fry the fish. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
