Really great, easy meal, but I did greatly increase the amount of cajun seasoning. I used about two or three tablespoons. Read More

Delicious and the batter stayed on wonderfullly! Would've given 5 stars except I increased the Cajun seasoning to 2 Tablespoons - using 1.5 t would not have been enough "Cajun" in my opinion. Will use this recipe go forward - thanks! Read More

Unbelievable flavour & texture! I used crushed up toasted bread (it was poppy-seed bread) and I used cajun & fajita spice for flavour. A great way to add flavour and texture to snapper or any other white fish. Read More

Made this twice now and it turned out very tasty! Instead of cajun seasoning I used a mix of Montreal chicken spice and some other stuff I happened to find. The breading texture is wonderful! Here too I made a little change used kefir instead of buttermilk which is almost the same just a bit thicker because I happened to have in my fridge. I would make almost any white fish with this recipe. Read More
