Herb Oven Fried Fish Fillets

Did you ever go fishing as a child? Usually the best part wasn't necessarily the catching, but the conversation. Lots of life lessons were learned — usually from dad or grandpa — with fishing poles in hand. The catch of the day was always delicious, though! Our Herb Oven Fried Fish Fillets will bring back some of those fond memories. The beauty of this recipe is it works for a variety of different fish: salmon, trout, bass and whitefish. Wash the fish (fresh caught or store bought), pat dry and cut into serving pieces. Dip the fish into Smith's Milk then dredge in the flour and herb mixture. Add the egg to the remaining milk and the crumbs to the remaining flour mixture. Dip your Herb Oven Fried Fish Fillets into each mixture, then bake until flaky. Garnish with parsley and lemon, and serve immediately. Herb Oven Fried Fish Fillets will make you feel like a kid again. The fun of catching your own meal is entirely optional.
