This is just the kind of fish and chip breading we love. I used wild Alaskan Cod because halibut was $20 a pound (and I was being cheap...though I prefer halibut). I did cut the filets lengthwise so we could get more of that crunchy goodness all over. Next time I would salt and pepper the filets before I dipped them but otherwise PERFECTION!!! Crispy, crunchy (NOT greasy) with flaky and tender mild fish. Sparky has already asked for a repeat SOON. Thanks for sharing this stellar fish recipe! Read More

Hands down the best breading I've ever made!! The only thing that I would change is the size of the chunks of fish. By the time the fish was cooked through the breading was almost too crispy. The smaller pieces were perfect. I would do 1 inch x 2 inch strips next time. I also used the same breading with Flounder instead of Halibut (for my kids.....Halibut is too expensive to buy enough for them.) It was delicious too! And took less time to cook. Overall a recipe definitely worth making!! Read More

Next time I would add salt to the breadcrumbs and make way less wash. I hate wasting good farm eggs! Or, alternatively, I'd definitely buy more fish as my whole family ate this up fast! Read More
