    Good recipe. It can be made healthier with a lot less oil, use olive oil, and less flour. For this kind of frying, don't use your evoo, use a lighter one. Less smoke.  -  02 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband and I LOVED this recipe. I followed very close to the original recipe, however I used less oil and I used seasoned bread crumbs. I also couldn't find halibut, so we used cod. DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing. We will make again. Yummm.  -  05 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is nothing more than fried fish with onions and balasamic vinigar sprinkled on top. Nothing too fancy, but this was surprisingly good! I seasoned the breading, but that's the only change I made. My four year old daughter gobbled it up!  -  12 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
