    This fish was good, I omitted the egg and buttermilk, and used crushed crackers for the breadcrumbs, and it was a winner, with a family that loves fried fish, thanks this will help keep them eating more healthy and not complain so much about it actually being healthy. - 7/1/08

    I wanted to try something different, as we grill our fish most of the time. This was nice, I did cut it into smaller pieces thinking that may help make it crispier-and it worked. I added Old Bay Seasoning, in addition to the seasonings in the recipe...the family enjoyed it! - 3/13/08

    I sliced 1 fillet into strips for my daughter, and left the other fillets whole. Unfortunately my fish was still slightly frozen so the breading didn't crisp up on the fillets, but the strips were crispy. The entire family enjoyed it even if the fillets weren't crunchy. - 5/10/18

    I tried this last week and my family loved. Fish came out flaky and crisp. I did how ever have to bake it longer than was recommended by about 10 minutes. - 4/2/12

    This was very good; I made it according to the recipe. Mine did not brown as nicely as I thought it should, but was crunchy. I will do this one again. - 5/7/11

    2nd REQUEST for HELP PLEASE :-)
    I'm sorry, but I didn't understand what the measurements were. There was an "A" there, and I don't know what that means. Can someone help me out? I think this recipe sounds good but don't understand how to make it.

    I'm not a big fan of fish but being a southern woman my fish must be fried and this has potential. Will add it to my weekend menu. - 5/29/08
