I recommend making this as fresh as possible, however, you CAN Store the breading mixture separately. 

Once you have the fish, simply start the process with the previously stored breading.

 

Serving Suggestions:

I love serving this fish with a fresh and light salad, however, you can serve the following:

Roasted Potatoes

Creamy Salads

Creamy Dips

French Fries (a classic)

Sweet Potatoes Fries (they taste Heavenly)!!!

Sauteed or Roasted Seasonal Veggies

Fresh Lemon/Lime

Yogurt Dips (they go extremely well)
