My husband and I love fresh, fried fish, but we're both trying to cut back on fats. I made up this recipe and it was a huge hit. He tells me that he likes it as much as deep-fried fish, and that's saying a lot! —LaDonna Reed, Ponca City, Oklahoma

"Made these for my husband tonight , I am not a fish person, and they were very good. I used panko bread crumbs and the coating was crispy."

"My husband and I enjoyed this fish. I didn't make any substitutions and found it very tasteful. It's a keeper in my recipe box."

"We tried this last night. Everyone liked it. I used Panko for the breading with fresh Parmesan and a little salt and pepper. I used fat free milk to moisten fish before rolling in Panko. It was crunchy and moist. I am eating a few pieces warmed up in the oven for breakfast and it retained the crunch! Very good and easy to make. My boys liked it so that is a big win!"

"Not much to write home about on this one. Fish does not have to be bland, this one sure is!"

"Good recipe! easy! Hey SingerRinger: try crushing a high fiber cereal like Fiber One for part of the crumbs & coating the fish with whipped egg whites to keep it at 4pts. You still need to spray the rack/sheet with cooking spray though. For those who substituted another kind of fish: cod doesn't need much seasoning, but some other kinds do: . Whatever you use needs to be firm/thick enough that it can be cut into 1"inch CUBES to get the right effect. Don't give up on enjoying fish: Keep "frying" until you find a combo you like!!"

"Great way to cook "fried" fish. Try a wire cooling rack to cook the fish and it will be even crispier. Make sure you spray the rack and the fish on both sides"

"4 pts. on Weight Watchers- making this tonight!- think 5 pts. is a better number because the fat grams could be 5. Not sure if the saturated fat is part of the first fat listed in the nutritional info."

"I don't usually like breaded fish but this was good. My husband really likes the recipe so I make it often."
