Fisherman's Crispy Coating

 Fisherman's Crispy Coating
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
