Pan Fried Fish and Oven Baked + Tarter Sauce

Tammy T


I love a good fried fish with both lemon and tarter sauce on it! Actually, its the only way I eat fish. This is really easy and Oh SO Good! ***** I haven't used ritz crackers in mine, just bread crumbs and I normally use filet of sole for the fish. Either way its good!!
