I like fish-a LOT. I remember growing up, my parents would take our family fishing quite often. When we came home, Dad would clean, bread & fry up the bluegill, bass or whatever we caught. Mom would have a side dish to go with it and it was the best meal!
As an, I haven’t taken the time to get a license and go myself lately, but I’ve never outgrown my love for good tasting fish. I’ve learned a few tricks over the years to make it quickly, tasty and without the mess of breading and frying it.
Now before turning your nose up at the coconut-think about Red Lobster’s coconut crusted shrimp…Yumm! And think about all the time and mess saved by not mixing the egg, milk and breading.
I like to bake fish to avoid the excess greasy mess all over the stove, counter and smell throughout the kitchen and house. Baking it in the oven also allows you to do other things while its cooking, and makes clean-up SO much easier.
I also like to sprinkle a little garlic powder on the fish. This helps prevent that “fishy” smell or taste that turns many people away from fish.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
