There are so many different ways to prepare fish that are much healthier than the deep fried method, so it wouldn't be fair not to a least encourage our readers to consider grilling or baking. Grilling fish is the way you want to go, if you want to finish with something that is jam packed with flavor. I love grilled fish with lots of seasoning like green peppers, garlic, and red onions. Yummy! Baking fish is also great, but you have to be very careful to watch out for dryness during preparation. Sometimes without the crunch, I crave the crunchiness of fried food. Look at this picture of the many products made by one of my favorite brands.
