Baked Fish with Breadcrumbs
Breadcrumbs are great with fish because they give it a crispy outer layer that works perfectly with the moist tenderness of the fish. They also make for a heartier meal overall.
In this recipe, we recommend using either buttered crumbs or cracker crumbs. Buttered crumbs are made by mixing breadcrumbs with butter.
This adds to their flavor and makes them crunch longer. It is the perfect way to make your dish even crisper and tastier.
Cracker crumbs are another option that some prefer to breadcrumbs. It makes for a lighter, crispier crunch that works especially well when breading fish fillets.
If you enjoy your fish with breadcrumbs, here are some great recipe ideas:
