“The fish in this recipe is actually fried in oil in the oven - it is not a low-fat alternative! The flavour and crunch are perfect. The recipe came from the March 08 copy of recipes+ magazine.”

  2. Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan and oregano on a large plate, and place flour and egg in separate bowls.

  4. Place fish on a plate, cover with plastic wrap, and chill for 15 minutes.
