I love this recipe! I don't like frying anything, so this was perfect. I used panko bread crumbs and seasoned them with salt and pepper and powdered garlic. I followed the milk, flour, milk, panko crumbs sequence in the original recipe. The crust was light and flakey and the fish was very tender and nothing was at all soggy. I made a avocado and jalapeno tartar sauce. Yummy!

This was good, filling, and in my opinion average +. I do not have access to the croutons required for the recipe, so I used bread crumbs seasoned with onion and garlic powder, and some dried mustard. Served with mashed potatoes and a green salad. Kids did not care for the fish (only 1 of 4 finished their fish) but my husband enjoyed it.

I made one change in this recipe, that was to dip the fish first in flour then the milk before dipping into the crouton crumbs, the breading stayed on and didn't have a mushy texture as the other reviewer stated. My daughter normally picks off breading but loved this one so it is a keeper. Next time I may try tweaking it a little just to see what I can come up with. Thanks for the recipe!

You will never deep fry again.....didn't read the directions too good and mixed the flour with the bread crumbs. It was great, dipped in milk, added desired seasoning then dipped in flour, crumb mixture. the last step of spraying on the cooking spray makes it come out like fried. Used fresh catfish but any fish would be good.....

I really liked this recipe! I skipped the first milk-dunk and started with salt and pepper, then flour, then milk, then breadcrumbs. I had some pretty thick filets, so I baked them for 15 minutes. The breading was PERFECT. It got crispy and stayed intact.

I also skipped the first dipping in milk, seasoned the flour with salt and pepper, and cooked on parchment paper and found it was lovely and crispy. Yummy!

I am always looking for alternatives to fried. We've done the baked thing to the point we don't like it anymore, but this recipe gave me some ideas. I also did the flour, milk and crumb sequence using crushed cheesits instead of bread crumbs. Really spiced up the flavors and the crunch was fantastic. Being easy to do didn't hurt either. :o)

This recipe was easy and yummy. I also dipped in flour, milk, then bread crumbs after seasoning the flour. Most certainly a keeper!!!
