Reviews for Baked Parmesan Perch
"I substituted with panko bread crumbs so it would be crunchier and added salt and pepper. Yum."
"I usually use my fathers beer batter recipe but was scanning and wanted something diabetic friendly..was thrilled that it was so easy..I added a tsp of garlic pepper to the recipe and not a piece was left! To boot one of my guest was a cook at Cheesecake Factory and was totally surprised and asked for the recipe as it would be great for the restraint menu for ease and you just can't beat the flavor! I also used Italian bread crumbs..was asked when we were having again..love the fact that it can be used on any fish.. I used perch and was dancing after the first bite! delightful and didn't have to worry about raising everyone's sugar level!"
"Easy and tasty."
"Honestly just needs a dash of pepper and it would be perfect I think."
"I have made this twice now and our family enjoys it a lot. I didn't have bread crumbs the first time so I used crushed gold fish crackers and I don't think I will try it any other way! I also sprinkle the topping over the fish instead of dredging. I like the extra flavor on top. This recipe would work well with any mild fish. It's a keeper!"
"This is a wonderful change."
"I just made this for dinner and it turned out great. My husband and two kids loved it as well. Love how simple it was to prepare."
"Quick and easy. The crust was not very firm, but the herbs really brought out the taste of the perch. Also I cooked it longer that 5 minutes."
"This fish was not very good at all. The seasoning had an odd taste."
