Rosalie Mellott says she enjoys quick-and-easy recipes. "Being a farm wife, I don't have much time to prepare meals," she writes from Oakland, Maryland. "That's why I keep this mix for coating fish on hand."


  • 1 cup crushed saltines (about 30 crackers)
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • 5 teaspoons seafood seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • ADDITIONAL INGREDIENT (for each batch):
  • 1 pound sole fillets


  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients. Store in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Yield: 6 batches (2 cups total).
  2. To prepare fish: Place 1/3 cup coating in a large resealable plastic bad; add fillets, a few piece at a time. Seal bag and turn to coat.
  3. Place in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.
