How to Cook Fresh Fish? – A Note from My Daughter-In-Law

“I always love visiting my husband’s family for the holidays and especially enjoy all the fresh fish recipes.  However, how to cook fresh fish was my concern! One night Holly whipped up one of her Crunchy Fish with this delicious Lemon Sauce from her cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen. I had never heard of the Panko crumbs and she was using those crumbs for the crust. To my surprise, it gave the dish a great light crunchy crust keeping it a healthy easy recipe. You can find Panko bread crumbs with regular bread crumbs at the grocery store and any kind of fish may be used for the recipe.
