    27 minutes

    This recipe is my husband's specialty, good for any fresh fish. I prefer jewfish but whatever your pleasure. Goes great with homemade mashed potatoes.

    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.  -  02 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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.  -  05 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  12 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
