Very good
This was fast and easy, 2 great reasons to make it! Very flavorful. I used Blue Hake instead. Tends to be spicy because of the pepper, but should be a family pleaser.

I did alter a bit. In leiu of flour, I used a 1/4 tsp of ground flax meal. Fantastic!!!

Not being a fish fan, I went into this recipie with an open mind. I must say, it definately wasn't that bad. I would make this again, but next time add a little spice to it. ;)
