I am a pretty inexperienced cook & have always been a bit intimidated with trying to "bread" things. This was simple, quick, and the fish was so tasty! It's a basic start, easy to embelish.



Quick to make, delicious to eat. Take care not to over cook the fish.

Really liked this recipe. At first I thought It was a joke because I don't usually fry fish in olive oil nor use flour for batter, but it worked! Really outstanding. Using 1/2 the flour with the same amount of spice, but no salt. Great!
