  • 3/4 cup crushed potato chips, about 2 ounces

AMAZING Tartar Sauce:

    Instructions

    Oven Fried Fish

    • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.
    • In a small bowl mix crushed cereal, Parmesan, potato chips, paprika, and melted butter. Pat fish dry and lay on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle topping evenly over top. Bake 12-15 (depending on thickness of fish) or until fish flakes easily with fork. Serve with AMAZING tartar sauce and lemons. 

    AMAZING Tartar Sauce

    • Place all tartar sauce ingredients in a mini prep food processor or mini chopper. Pulse until well mixed, but not pureed. Alternatively, finely chop capers and mix all ingredients in a bowl.

      Notes

      Substitutions for Oven Fried Fish
      • Use any flaky, mild white fish such as tilapia, cod, flounder, swai, grouper, or catfish. Baking times will depend on the thickness of the fish.
      • Swap out any type of preferred potato chip -  baked (will also save calories), salt & vinegar, BBQ, tortilla chips, etc.
      • Substitute any neutral tasting cereal - Corn Chex, Rice Chex, Rice Krispies, or Corn Flakes (Corn Flakes are not gluten free) 
      • Grated Parmesan can be substituted for the freshly grated parmesan cheese.
      How to Reheat Cooked Fish
      1. Preheat oven to300ºF.
      2. Place a large piece of foil on a baking sheet and lay fish on top of foil. Fold up the sides of the foil so it's loosely tenting the fish.
      3. Bake until fish is heated through. This will take approximately 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish.
