This fish recipe was born out of necessity! I planned on making beer battered fish for dinner one night, had everything prepared but realized I had no beer! So, instead of stopping what I was doing, I decided to try coca-cola instead and it worked beautifully. I've made fried fish that way every time now, the family loves it!!
