My husband and I LOVED this recipe. I followed very close to the original recipe, however I used less oil and I used seasoned bread crumbs. I also couldn't find halibut, so we used cod. DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing. We will make again. Yummm.
Good recipe. It can be made healthier with a lot less oil, use olive oil, and less flour. For this kind of frying, don't use your evoo, use a lighter one. Less smoke.
This is nothing more than fried fish with onions and balasamic vinigar sprinkled on top. Nothing too fancy, but this was surprisingly good! I seasoned the breading, but that's the only change I made. My four year old daughter gobbled it up!
I used cod and this fish came out better than I expected. I was worried it was going to be soggy, but it was not.
My husband and I really enjoyed this way of making halibut. I used seasoned bread crumbs and all purpose flour. The balsamic vinegar adds a good flavor.
Sorry but I had a couple of problems with this recipe. The flour/breadcrumb mixture wouldn't stick to the fish without a binder. I whisked a whole egg, dipped the fish into flour, the egg and then into the flour/breadcrumb mixture. After doing this the fish was really good. The balsamic for me was too sweet to serve with fish. I felt and tasted that the dish needed more acidity. Thanks for posting your recipe.
