This is one of my favorite ways to prepare perch. Taco seasoning and cornmeal make the coating zesty and unique.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2012

Awesome Recipe! Made this with the Grilled Prosciutto Asparagus for my family and it turned out to be a hit! The only thing was I doubled the recipe and would have needed an additional pkg of Taco seasoning(total of 3) since the fish soaks up alot when shaking in bag, otherwise will give this one 5 Stars!!!
