    I made this tonight for supper. After it browned I put it in the oven to make sure the fish was throughly cooked. It was wonderful especially with a little bit of lemon juice on it. - 12/31/10

    Very good and easy. Next time i will sprinkle the seasoning all over the fish before dipping in the cornmeal to increase the flavor. - 3/5/10

    This was very quick and I was surprised at how well it "fried" up with just a squirt of vegetable spray in the nonstick pan. Both my husband and 23 year old son thought it was good. - 1/22/10
