    Rita~'s Note:

    Crispy! Serve with tartar sauce. You can cut into small pieces before breading so the kids can eat like nuggets. You can also deep fry! Stays crispy for packing in a lunch or picnic! A major importance in artisanal fishing in Africa and the Levant, and are of increasing importance in aquaculture around the world.

      Absolutely wonderful! My son would not stop raving about this fish. The coating was cruchy and the fish was moist. My parents came over the next day after I made this fish and it was still crispy. My mother said it was like something from a restaurant. Thank you so much for posting.

      This is a wonderful recipe. It was crispy and no fishy flavor. I put it in the oven @ 350 just to make sure it was cooked through for 10 min. Kids didn't even whine that it was fish.
