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

Directions

  • 1. Place taco seasoning in a large resealable bag; add perch fillets, one at a time, and shake to coat.

"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!!!"
