Potato Chip Crusted Fish Filet

Check out this simple recipe for potato chip crusted fish filets. You can use any white flakey fish you like. I really enjoy tilapia or cod because they are inexpensive, taste great and can be used in lots of recipes. This This recipe calls for coating the fish filets in ranch dressing. You can also use mayo, italian and light varieties of dressing. This light coating help the potato chips to stick to the fish, keeps the filets from drying out and adds great flavor. The chips can be any flavor you like (BBQ, Old Bay, Salt and Vinegar), bake up golden brown and add great crunch to your dish. You can also use some crushed tortilla chips or even Funyuns. Serve this up with some veggies, raw or sautéed and some fresh tarter sauce and you have your self a great meal.
