    This was really good. I don't think this is a good enough recipe to use with halibut, but it's definitely good for a less expensive fish like cod. I followed the recipe exactly and couldn't get the fish really crispy. Next time I'm going to try and skip coating the pan in oil and directly spray the fish with canola oil right before baking and see if that helps get it crispier.

    Fancy? Not really. They were a little too earthy for my taste, and the cod seemed chewy. What saved it was the dipping sauce. YUM! High pts, too, at 11. Not really worth all the effort or points!

    Made this with a few little tweaks. Overall it was really good. I used a pumpkin ale - was fun and got to drink the rest of the bottle. Used tilapia instead of cod. Didn't make the dipping sauce. Had to use more panko bread crumbs than it called for to cover all the pieces. Used more salt too. The seasonings were way off here. I substituted smoked sweet paprika instead cumin. Only used 2 whole eggs not 2 egg whites plus one whole one. Used a baking sheet and my cookie cooling rack one on top of the other to get them extra crispy without using extra oil over the top.... lets the air circulate better in the oven. Didn't stick at all yay! My toddler loved it and will definitely make it again (increasing the spices by at least double).

    I made the sauce from this recipe and it was awesome! Nicely tangy.

    We enjoyed the more unique taste to the "breading" on the fish and loved the dipping sauce. We felt that the amount of flour and beer mixture it calls for left a lot of waste, so may try reducing in the future. Would be very likely to make this dish again! (Recommendation: use non-stick foil on baking sheet to help prevent anything sticking.)
