Crispy Oven-Fried Fish

Last weekend my husband and I went to Montreal, Quebec.  Let’s just say it was…stressful.  There was construction EVERYWHERE…on the freeways, in the suburban areas, downtown, you name it.  And of course half the exits we needed for the places we were going were closed.  Also, there are about 1,000,000,000 freeways.  That being said, it is a lovely city that is rich in history and culture.  We visited the Jardin Botanique (aka Botanical Gardens) twice, ate at a couple of yummy restaurants, visited Laurier Avenue, and got to see the Notre-Dame Basilica from the outside (there was an event on the day we went, so we were unable to go inside).

My husband is somewhat of an aspiring amateur photographer, and I got quite a kick out of taking pictures of him taking pictures. =P


I haven’t done much cooking lately…and by lately I mean like 4 days.  Haha.  In any case, last night I made this delicious oven-fried fish, courtesy of How Sweet It Is.  The blogger has this prepared as a sandwich, so that’s what we did also, but you could eat this plain, also.  I didn’t pair it with chips (but click on the link above for the blogger’s kale chips recipe, if you’d like).  I threw together a Caesar salad (romaine lettuce, croutons, parmesan cheese, and Caesar dressing – nothing fancy).  We decided to get innovative again, as we don’t have a wire rack (remember last time when my husband had the idea to take one of the racks off our grill?).  In any case, the salt and vinegar potato chips made a great breading.  I’ve used crackers and other various items as breading before, so I figured this would be a great idea also!  I topped our sandwiches with lettuce and sharp cheddar cheese, with a dill pickle on the side.  YUM!  This dish is also super simple to throw together, making it a great weeknight meal.
