Expert Tips

Serve these crispy fish fillets in a plastic basket lined with cooking parchment paper. Add coleslaw, potato chips, tartar sauce and a stack of napkins for a true fish-fry experience!

These fillets go especially well sandwiched in burger buns. Adding tartar sauce, crisp lettuce leaves and a sliced tomato gives you the Ultimate Fish Sandwich.
