And for anyone that isn't fond of the "fish" taste, soak the fillets in milk for 20 - 30 minutes, then rinse and pat dry before following the rest of the directions.

I used to despise fish, but my DH made me try it this way once and I've been hooked ever since!

I may have to try this since we can't fry fish anymore~

Thanks for the tip about the milk. I HATE fishy taste!

It works on country ham too -- pulls out some of the salt and makes the meat a little more tender. Amazing qualities of milk!

That's good to know. I remember the country ham at Waffle House. So much more tasty than their other stuff but enough salt to dry up your arteries at one stroke! ( I made a punny)
