Crunchy oven fried fish is easy to make and so delicious! This healthy fried fish recipe uses the oven to create a crispy coating on the fish, eliminating the need for deep frying!
I love it when I find something that is quick and easy but also something that’s a winner with my family. That’s why I love this Crunchy Oven Fried Fish recipe so much! My sister passed it along several years ago and not only does it come together quickly, it’s easy to make the mixture ahead of time to have it ready for any time you want a quick dinner recipe. It’s healthy and delicious. I serve it with rice, quinoa pilaf or potatoes, and usually roasted broccoli or corn on the cob and a tossed salad. It’s one of those recipes that I like to make, even when I don’t feel like cooking.
One thing I like to do is make extra crumb mixture for the oven fried fish.
I store it in a glass jar or in a zip top bag. It’s easy to double or triple the recipe and that makes the next meal prep that much easier.
There’s not a whole lot more to say about this crunchy oven fried fish recipe, other than that you need to try it!
And keep it handy for when you want a recipe that simple, delicious and family friendly!
