"The pretzels add a great crunchy coating that sticks to the fish when frying. The flavor is excellent and these fillets serve well alone or as a fish sandwich." — wendy

frozen cod fillets, thawed
This was VERY good! I pan fried it in a deep skillet, 5 minutes per side, and it came out perfectly. I was worried the larger pieces of pretzel wouldn't stay on, but they did. The coating was wonderfully crunchy. Will make again!
Okay. I won't make it again, but it wasn't horrible.
Followed the recipe, except used talapia instead of cod & boy where these good! Thought the seasoning was perfect. Was worried that they may fry too long because they got fairly dark, but, came out nice and crunchy & perfect--not dry. I don't know if it makes a huge difference but, after I egg/coated the fish, I let them rest for about 5-10min. before frying--I just think they set up better. Served w/ tarter sauce.
This was a great way to coat fish!! It turned out great! All I had to do was tell my kids that it had pretzels on it and they were all for it! I added a bit more seasoning and ended up crushing a little more than I had initially. I thought that it was super!
I really liked the coating, but I will add some Old Bay for a little more flavor next time. I fried the fish in EVOO to make it a little healthier.
This was good. I changed the recipe, but not on purpose. I didn't realize until i started cooking that i didn't have enough pretzels! I made up the differnce with some herbed stuffing mix. Pan fried them in just a little bit of oil and was very surprised how tasty they came out. My 5 yr old thought i bought them from the store because they tasted like our favorite brand of frozen fish sticks! DH, the fried fish snob, complimented me on how crunchy they were even after they were reheated. Great recipe. Will make again.
My new favorite fish! I cooked some fresh water bass. I also added a little garlic powder and seasoned salt to the flour. I mixed olive oil and corn oil for cooking. Great recipe!
I will definately do this one again!! Folled recipe exactly and it made a very tasty dinner with a side of potatoe salad!!
