This recipe was passed on to me by a co-worker. My husband fishes so much so we are always trying new ways to cook our fillets. This is approximately the amounts I use, but it's easy to adjust and so quick to make.

    Crush as many of the potato chips needed to completely cover the fillets..just need a light layer over them
