  • Fried fish, without the greasy feel or taste

    Fish is healthy but fried fish is not as good for us as fish that’s prepared without frying.
    In fact, nutritionists say that frying fish negates the benefit of eating fish.  
    I like a crunchy coating on the fish but I don’t like a greasy feel or taste. The best way to get crunch is to use panko bread crumbs. Corn flakes will work, but they still look like crunched corn flakes to me.
    Regular bread crumbs are softer and don’t get as crunchy.
