These were the bomb. The only thing I did different was cook them in the air fryer.

This is a great recipe to get people who don't love fish to eat it. Perfect for weeknight ease. Btw, don't get hung up on the cod it calls for. I used catfish because I already had some in the freezer - cheaper and it turned out great.

Quick, easy and yummy! We drizzled with melted butter rather than cooking spray.

This is a healthy and excellent way to fix a firm-fleshed fish; we have whitefish easily available up here in the UP and that is what I used. Dredging the fish in flour first lets the batter stick .... great tip! Like one reviewer said, I also added Parmesan cheese to my crumb mixture.Easy tartar sauce: One tablespoon of mayo or Miracle Whip, one tsp. of sweet pickle relish, a dash of lemon juice, and a dash of Old Bay if you like it to zing. Use these ratios to make as much as you need.

This was very good but I did a couple of things differently. I used flounder instead of cod, I buttered the pan instead of using cooking spray and I added grated Parmesan cheese to the bread crumb mixture to give it more flavor. I will be making this again, thanks!

First recipe that I have been able to keep the coating on the fish. This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe. I made it into fillets instead of sticks. Sides were asian rice and california vegetable blend.

My husband and I enjoyed this recipe. I left the fish fillets whole and used a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature since the fillets were thick. The only change I will make the next time I cook these will be to decrease the amount of salt. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Jennifer!

This recipe is good. I used Cod and it smelled really fishy during the baking process. However, the taste of the fish was not at all fishy. Picky toddlers and husband like the dish. I will try it with tilapia next time.
