This recipe makes great and healthy snack especially for kids for their after-school treat or weekend lunch or dinner. The fish slices are oven baked instead of deep fried so it makes the dish so much healthier. Also a quick, savoury homemade crisp coating mixture made with cornflake crumbs are used, hence make it more fragrant. This has the best all-around flavour and crisp texture of any oven baked fish anyone has ever cooked.
