"If you are having trouble getting your breading to stick to the fish; place it in the freezer for 20 min and then right to the grill. It works just the same for fried fish or fried chicken. As others suggested, it needs salt and the seasoned bread crumbs should do the trick."

"The breading on these sandwiches really needs salt. Otherwise it is quite bland. I also couldn't get the breading to stick without dipping the fish in beaten egg first. I'd try them again, but with salt."
