We fish on most summer weekends, so we have lots of fresh fillets. Everyone who tries this crisp, golden fish loves it. It's my husband's favorite, and I never have leftovers. Honey gives the coating a deliciously different twist. —Sharon Collis, Colona, Illinois

"I've been using this recipe for many years now. We catch a lot of crappie in the south and it's wonderful with this recipe. Also have tried using other types of fish and it's always a hit!"

"My grandma used to fry walleye and northern pike with a very similar recipe. Yummy! Brings back fond memories of going to the cabin & fishing each summer."
