Crazy Oven Fried Fish Filets (Nutty That Is!)

“Crunchy outside & moist inside, great tasting. Cuts down on frying too. Decorate with Lemon slices. Try serving this fish dish with my "Italian Rice and Peas" You can do this ahead right up to the point of baking just cover and refrigerate the fish until you are ready to cook it. Another variation to this recipe- try using Whole Wheat flour & fry the fish on a non stick pan. I made it without using egg the crumbs stuck to the fish with no trouble”
