I made this recipe for my husbands enjoyment, since I am allergic to this and many other sea foods. I even made hush puppies and Cole Slaw to go with it, and served Stouffer's Mac & Cheese with it. He loved this rare treat, which made me happy. This recipe is crispy like fried, but is baked in the oven instead. It is quite simple and easy to make, especially if you use the Japanese Bread Crumbs called Panko. The fish stays moist and flakey, and my husband says it taste great. Give it a try the next time you are in the mood for fish, and want to save a few extra calories by baking it.

Didn't get a chance to take a picture of the plate that was served, it disappeared so fast. This picture is from my recipe called Crispy Oven Fried Fish.
