I love to eat fish, and typically try to make at least one seafood dish each week. I’ve talked about before how I’m blessed to have an abundance of fish at my disposal thanks to my husband and brother in-law for their love of fishing. I’m always looking for new fish recipes, and this recipe just so happens to take one of the top ranks for awesome fish recipes! I found this recipe at the Best Meals Happen at Home website. I would have never though to use Lemon Pepper Panko bread crumbs on my fish for fish tacos. The flavors are robust and require very little ingredients to prepare.
