This is my favorite way to prepare fresh fish. The fillets cook up moist with an irresistible crisp, golden coating. Whether your fish comes from a nearby lake or the grocery store, it makes a terrific summer meal. -Tammy Moore-Worthington, Artesia, New Mexico

"Love this recipe. I use the larger amount of pepper. Tastes awesome on a nice light bun with cheese and lettuce."
