Salsa Fish

"My family loves outdoor activities, especially fishing," informs Diane Grajewski of North Branch, Michigan. "I give their catch of the day unexpected zip with salsa. It dresses up these golden crumb-coated fillets and keeps them moist and tender."

    Easy and delicious. All I had to purchase was the fish.

    I used bass and some large crappie fillets and it was spectacular!

    Really liked this. A spicy salsa gives it kick, and lots of cheese gives it even more flavor. Great for people who normally are not fish fans.

    Homemade or fresh salsa is best for this - I found the commercial brands too wet
