Crunchy French Fried Onion Fish Filets

Valeree Dunbar


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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.
