I tried a new way to make Baked "Fried" Fish last night and it turned out REALLY, REALLY good! I told my husband, "I don't know why we don't have this more often, because its just delicious!" In this post, I posted how to make Baked "Fried" Fish by baking fish with fish coating (a packet of "Fish Fry") on it, which turns out really good also, AND On this post, I posted how to make Baked "Fried" Chicken. Well, last night my husband had the BRILLIANT idea to bake the fish using the same coating/method that I had used on the chicken. The results were "fabulous" (as spoken by Fabio LOL).
I'm not going to repost the entire recipe. Just use the Baked "Fried" Chicken Recipe BUT replace the chicken with thawed tilapia filets (I get the bag of frozen filets from Aldi) .
One note: you have to be very careful when flipping the fish because fish is so flaky. I used a big flat spatula to do this.
To round out our supper, we had baked french fries, pinto beans (I cook a big batch of beans and then freeze in smaller batches so I just had to warm those up), also our favorite Homemade Sweetened Cornbread. I would have loved to have made THIS SUPER EASY COLE SLAW but didn't have any cabbage and certainly didn't want to make a stop by the store on my way home.
I love this recipe for three reasons:
1. ITS SUPER YUMMY;
2. BIG DADDY LIKES IT AS MUCH AS I DO; and
3. I DIDN'T HAVE TO BUY A SPECIAL "MIX" FOR MAKING BAKED FISH (saving moolah!)
Try it! You will be as thrilled as we were with your supper!
