"A friend at work shared some of his fresh catch prepared in this simple way," recalls Bruce Headley, Greenwood, Missouri. "After one bite, I knew it was the best fried fish I'd ever tasted. Whenever I catch bass, crappie or bluegill, my wife uses this recipe. The fillets come out moist and not fishy-tasting. Our family won't eat fish any other way."
