  • My 16 y.o. would love this.I will make this soon.Sometimes when I am lazy I will mix everything together with much less bread crumbs and a bit more mayo or mustard ,coat the fish ,sprinkle some of the panko on top and bake.I do this with salmon all the time.Just lazy sometimes but it is still inhaled by my teens.

  • That sounds good. I don't really like fish, but my youngest son loves it so we have it occasionally.
