Using the French fried onions in this recipe really makes a flavorful addition to any kind of fish. I was out of milk but did have some buttermilk on hand. It was a blessing in disguise and the fish turned out very good. You can also use this recipe with chicken or pork too. enjoy.

The French fried onion in the crust on this fish give it a very nice flavor - you get a flavor of onion but it isn't overwhelming. I also like the crunchiness that the onions and panko gave the fish. This is a delicious and quick dish to serve to your fish loving family and friends.
