After reading the reviews on this recipe, I decided to try it and I am repeating what most others say. Delicious! I added some lemon juice...just a wonderful change in baking fish.

This is one of the BEST recipes I have ever tasted for an oven fried fish!!! I did, however, cut back on the flour and add more corn meal, as I wanted the more corn meal-y taste. I also sprayed some cooking spray on top of the fillets during cooking to help them to crisp up on the top. Made up some tartar sauce... could've been eating it at a restaurant!!!!!! Truly tasted like "fried fish"!!!!!

Really good. I had my grandchildren over for dinner so I cut the fish into bite size pieces and made "fish nuggets". It was a hit.

Great Dish!

this recipe came out great!! follow the directions to a tee and it will be an excellent dish! My 3 yr old was asking for more!

Mine looked nothing like the picture. The covering was dry and it all didn't cook right. Might have put to much in that area. Not sure why the coating wasnt' as thick or crunchy. Everyone peeled of the coating and then ate the fish.

I originally wanted to try the oven fried chicken recipe but didn't have chicken so I did the fish recipe instead. I loved it!! It was such an easy prepping and cooking process. No pots and pans to scub, just the one baking dish I used! It took a total of 30 minutes from start to finish and dinner was on the table after a busy day at work! Flavorful, easy and will do it again!

just add...

mix up a little tarter sauce to go with this recipe and you've got a restaurant quality meal!

Good--we like fish, and this provides a different way to prepare. Hope to make fish this way more often

The oven fried fish was so delicious. My son wanted seconds and he never eats his food. I used talipia fish.

It's hard to find something everyone likes that is also easy. This is it! I used frozen haddock fillets and for the first time in a long time there were no leftover pieces of fish! Simple and delicious!
