The pretzels add a great crunchy coating that sticks to the fish when frying. The flavor is excellent and these fillets serve well alone or as a fish sandwich.

  • Fry coated fish 10 minutes in the preheated oil, turning once, until golden brown and easily flaked with a fork.

This was VERY good! I pan fried it in a deep skillet 5 minutes per side and it came out perfectly. I was worried the larger pieces of pretzel wouldn't stay on but they did. The coating was wonderfully crunchy. Will make again! Read More

Followed the recipe except used talapia instead of cod & boy where these good! Thought the seasoning was perfect. Was worried that they may fry too long because they got fairly dark but came out nice and crunchy & perfect--not dry. I don't know if it makes a huge difference but after I egg/coated the fish I let them rest for about 5-10min. before frying--I just think they set up better. Served w/ tarter sauce. Read More

This was a great way to coat fish!! It turned out great! All I had to do was tell my kids that it had pretzels on it and they were all for it! I added a bit more seasoning and ended up crushing a little more than I had initially. I thought that it was super! Read More

I really liked the coating but I will add some Old Bay for a little more flavor next time. I fried the fish in EVOO to make it a little healthier. Read More

This was good. I changed the recipe but not on purpose. I didn't realize until i started cooking that i didn't have enough pretzels! I made up the differnce with some herbed stuffing mix. Pan fried them in just a little bit of oil and was very surprised how tasty they came out. My 5 yr old thought i bought them from the store because they tasted like our favorite brand of frozen fish sticks! DH the fried fish snob complimented me on how crunchy they were even after they were reheated. Great recipe. Will make again. Read More

My new favorite fish! I cooked some fresh water bass. I also added a little garlic powder and seasoned salt to the flour. I mixed olive oil and corn oil for cooking. Great recipe! Read More

Great base - but there was just something missing... I'll definitely try it again sometime - but will probably just stick to using Fish Crisp until I figure this one out;) Read More

This was really good! The only thing I would change is to add a bit more salt. I bet this would be great with seasoned chicken breasts as well. Read More
