7/16 So crispy and delish! 11/17 don't overcook fish!

Oh my goodness! This was amazing ?? The halibut was super fresh from Costco.... Exceptional

I did not have bread crumbs, but it still turned out amazing. We also only cooked the 3" pieces about 2 minutes.

Something about the combination of bread and Panko crumbs creates a great crunchy crust!! It's a keeper for any type fish you fry! We have used it on walleye too!! Yum!

Excellent crunchy coating! I also use this for chicken breast.

Will definitely make again. This will be our go to fish batter recipe! Next time we'll try smaller nugget sized pieces.

Great we loved this & will be making it again!!!
