Oh my flavor. In general, I like fish. Milder fish is preferred. But when you add a ton of flavor and crunch, then I love fish. And by ton of flavor and crunch, I mean this. Dill, lemon, Dijon mustard. With some bread crumbs. Generously piled on top of a mild fish, like cod. YUM. This will not disappoint!!!
