This recipe is my husband's specialty, good for any fresh fish. I prefer halibut but whatever your pleasure. Goes great with homemade mashed potatoes.

This is nothing more than fried fish with onions and balasamic vinigar sprinkled on top. Nothing too fancy but this was surprisingly good! I seasoned the breading but that's the only change I made. My four year old daughter gobbled it up! Read More

I used cod and this fish came out better than I expected. I was worried it was going to be soggy but it was not. Read More

Sorry but I had a couple of problems with this recipe. The flour/breadcrumb mixture wouldn't stick to the fish without a binder. I whisked a whole egg dipped the fish into flour the egg and then into the flour/breadcrumb mixture. After doing this the fish was really good. The balsamic for me was too sweet to serve with fish. I felt and tasted that the dish needed more acidity. Thanks for posting your recipe. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this way of making halibut. I used seasoned bread crumbs and all purpose flour. The balsamic vinegar adds a good flavor. Read More
