crushed saltine crackers
grated Parmesan cheese
yellow perch fillets
I just made this recipe for the 2nd time. I used Panko bread crumbs instead of saltines (just for convenience) and it was awesome! My teen and toddler loved it. I guess it would be great for any white fish!
We aim for low carb meals with a diabetic in the family so I used 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and didn't use any bread crumbs. It came out great. Obviously the recipe is changed quite a lot without adding the bread crumbs...but the seasonings, the butter, the tenderness of the filets after about 25 minutes...these make this recipe a 5 star recipe!
I made this for dinner last night and it was easy to make and tasted wonderful. I even made some without the crackers (gluten free) for myself and it was just as good. We eat lots of fish, and I try lots of recipes. This was our favorite.
I did a dairy free version with no cheese and coconut oil instead of butter. It turned out beautiful, dairy-free, and delicious!
This recipe plays up the already buttery flavor of the perch and gives a nice crisp coating without resorting to frying. I made one change, using Ritz cracker crumbs instead of saltines. I also bumped the flavor by toasting my butter. I omitted the Parmesan since it was a component of one of the sides. Thank you, Cindy, my family loved dinner and half of the claim the don't like fish.
I didn't need all the butter listed. I also breaded w/ Panko crumbs and spices ahead of time and then just put in oven when ready to bake. Crunchy!
I have one who won't eat fish, so I revised the recipe as follows - instead of crackers, crunched up sour cream and onion chips and mixed with panko crumbs. Then dipped fish in flour, egg mixed with milk (only 2 Tbsp) then coating. Did the same for chicken strips. I put them all on cooling racks over a rimmed baking sheet. Cooked at 350 for 20-30 minutes. Yum!
