My father, Garfield Freih, is an avid fisherman and frequently acts as the chef on fishing trips he takes with his buddies. To please that group - and to get us kids to eat fish at home - he created this pleasantly mild crispy coating. -Tammi Freih, Lakewood, California

"I really enjoyed this coating on my trout last night. I usually don't fry things but must have done something right as it didn't come out a bit greasy. Made it gluten free by using brown rice flour (along with brown rice krispies). I will definitely make this again and may try a baked version soon. Thanks bunches Tammi!"

"A simple, good coating for any fish. Easy to tailor to individual tastes (I added cayenne pepper instead of lemon-pepper)."
