Crispy Oven Fried Fish

Rose Mary Mogan


I am allergic to many seafoods, even to touch it, but I don myself with gloves & make this dish for my husband, because he likes it. He really loves this version, that is also listed in my cookbook. You can use either corn flake crumbs or panko bread crumbs, I always have panko bread crumbs in the pantry, but used the Corn Flake crumbs before I started using Panko. You can almost always change what you don't like in most recipes for something that you do like or do have on hand without making a trip to the store. When I make this for him, I usually have something else, & just have the sides.
