Crumb Dilly Fish

This recipe was passed along from my dad and has always been a family favorite.  It’s quick and easy for a weeknight meal and any white fish works well.  My personal favorite is haddock and the dill provides a little “tang.”  I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as I have over the years.
