    I make this gluten free and it is the best fried fish we have ever made, period.

    This is an amazing fried fish recipe. I used a deep fryer and the cooking time was half the time as listed in the recipe.

    Thought I would try this with some frozen Tilapia fillets I had in the freezer. It was outstanding!
