Here in New Zealand we catch red snapper all the time, and believe me, this is the best way of eating it! Serve with lemon wedges, tarter sauce and hot chips (French fries) on the side.

My boyfriend and I loved this fish and chips. He has been to London and New Zealand and found this to be one of the best recipes we have ever run across. We used seasoned breadcrumbs to add a little more flavor. Great recipe!!! Read More

We weren't thrilled with this recipe. I think we just prefer batter-fried fish with seasonings like garlic powder seasoning salt and cayenne. Read More

I tried this with flounder and it was very good. It really brings out the flavor of the fish. My 2-year-old did try one piece which I consider a victory! Read More

Very Good and Very Simple. I added seasoning salt and Italian spices to the bread crumbs for a little more flavor. Read More
