OK, here it is! My FIRST recipe post to the site, This recipe was given to me by my mom, I have NO idea where she got it, but it is just awesome, simple to make, and it is the ONLY fish my picky, picky 11 year old daughter will eat, she loves it! She actually BEGS me to make it.
"Enjoyed it very much! My 18 month old daughter loved it too. I don't use non stick cookware so I needed to move the filets just slightly every so often to keep them from sticking but it worked just fine. Also, I purchased 2 3.5 ounce boxes of planko but found that one box would have been pleanty. This will definatly be at our dinner table again. "- PKP

missdanabee 1 month agoOk... Def need to add 'flouring' to the directions before coating with mustard.

AESG 1 year agoI mixed an egg with the mustard sauce and the crumbs stuck fine, but I could not taste the mustard.
mogriff1 1 year agoVery flavorful! Hubby and I enjoyed it!
tresstylez 1 year agowhoa! very nice flavor!! I might need to agree with another poster who said a small amount of flour is necessary. dry-wet-dry! I added egg to the dijonaisse and cooked in olive oil and butter and it turned out excellent. cook until CRISP!!
Sassafras1187 1 year agoJust ok will use less mayo/mustard sauce if made again
Mamaschaef 1 year agoVery tasty. My kids thought it was chicken at first! Then they ate it with very little protest, a first for them with fish! I also added grated Parmesan to the panko and had a little trouble with the panko sticking. Next time may dip in flour and add the dijonnaise to a beaten egg. Definitely will make again!

M9rose 2 years agoThis recipe was so easy and good! I never eat fish. This was so good I couldn't even tell it was fish. My 3 yr old AND 13 month old loved it too!
Tannerk8 2 years agoThe first time my girls (7 & 5) would eat fish (without argument). A very light dish that was easy to prepare. I will definitely make again. The perfect dish for introducing fish to your diet.
Eoshizawa 2 years agoIn order to have bread crumbs stay on the fish, you have to coat the fish with flour. Then dip it into an beaten egg and coat it with Panko. Never fails.
JANDS 2 years agoI am trying to feed my family more fish. So I made this for dinner tonight. My husband who is a 'meat and potato person' liked it and happily ate it! So easy to make and tasty. After I breaded the fish, I kept it in the refrigerator for an hour or so before cooking. The panko stayed on. Thank you.
Rosiecrab 2 years agoReally tasty, I used homemade granary breadcrumbs with some grated Parmesan instead of Panko and baked it in a moderate oven for 15 minutes.
