Instead of Frying Fish

 Instead of Frying Fish
This quick recipe is one I discovered 20 years ago in a fund-raiser cookbook. Since my husband is an avid fisherman, I've put it to good use over the years. The crispy potato chip coating bakes up toasty brown, and the fillets stay nice and moist. —Sharon Funfsinn, Mendota, Illinois
