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!!"
"Great way to cook "fried" fish. Try a wire cooling rack to cook the fish and it will be even crispier. Make sure you spray the rack and the fish on both sides"
"4 pts. on Weight Watchers- making this tonight!- think 5 pts. is a better number because the fat grams could be 5. Not sure if the saturated fat is part of the first fat listed in the nutritional info."
"I don't usually like breaded fish but this was good. My husband really likes the recipe so I make it often."
"This was an easy meal, my kids, who are VERY picky LOVED this meal!"
"Not a favorite...and I had high hopes for this one!"
"I used tilapia instead of cod. I found it tasty but it did not win over my kids, so it may not make another appearance at my table. I did like it though..."
"My skills with cooking fish are limited; however, this recipe was easy and very tasty. My husband is fairly picky with fish, and his response was "we can have this again..and again...and again." This is definitely a keeper recipe."
"My husband and I love this recipe with some modifications. I don't use the cornflakes or the butter-flavored cooking spray. I use garlic and herb flavored bread crumbs with the salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. This has become something I cook at least twice a month."
"This recipe had great texture... might try with seasoned bread crumbs next time... or perhaps another spice combination - but the plain bread crumbs + corn flakes + cheese just didnt have enough flavor for me."
"Didn't make my favorites list. sc"
