Reviews for Oven-Fried Fish Nuggets
"My husband and I enjoyed this fish. I didn't make any substitutions and found it very tasteful. It's a keeper in my recipe box."
"We tried this last night. Everyone liked it. I used Panko for the breading with fresh Parmesan and a little salt and pepper. I used fat free milk to moisten fish before rolling in Panko. It was crunchy and moist. I am eating a few pieces warmed up in the oven for breakfast and it retained the crunch! Very good and easy to make. My boys liked it so that is a big win!"
"saw this recipe yesterday & made it last night - very tasty! used crushed ritz crackers & panko for breading & also put on rack during baking for xtra crispiness--my husband & I thought it was very good--will make again--omitted the 1/2 tsp of salt d/t salt in crackers."
"Not much to write home about on this one. Fish does not have to be bland, this one sure is!"
"Good recipe! Easy! Hey SingerRinger: try crushing a high fiber cereal like Fiber One for part of the crumbs & coating the fish with whipped egg whites to keep it at 4pts. You still need to spray the rack/sheet with cooking spray though. For those who substituted another kind of fish: cod doesn't need much seasoning, but some other kinds do: . Whatever you use needs to be firm/thick enough that it can be cut into 1"inch CUBES to get the right effect. Don't give up on enjoying fish: Keep "frying" until you find a combo you like!!"
