    2. Warm oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
    3. Place fish one at a time in hot oil and fry about 2 and a half minutes. Turn fish over and fry another 2 and a half minutes more. Remove and drain on paper towel. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

    Made this tonight for my family, mostly because I didn't have the ingredients to make another recipe. I'm glad now. This was a very easy to make, delicious fish. The oats added a nice crunch. (Will it also counter the cholestrol in the vegetable oil?) Next time, I'll add more seasoning to the flour. It's a keeper.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This deserves 10 stars. It so moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside. I love the oatmeal. Why didn't I ever think of this. By far the best fish I have ever made.  -  29 Sep 2008


    My husband and I sat in stunned silence as our normaly fussy 4yr old gobbled this fish up. His only request to us was "try your dinner it's good" and he was right. We did add season salt to the flour as suggested by other members  -  29 Sep 2008
