Fish Bites
  • In a small bowl, mix together the mayo and lemon pepper seasoning.
  • In another small bowl, mix together the 2 kinds of bread crumbs and the garlic powder.
  • Cut the fish fillets into bite sized pieces, about 1 to 2 " big.
  • Dip the fish in the lemon pepper mayo mixture, coating both sides, then into the bread crumbs, coating both sides.
  • Place them on a foil lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350°F for about 12 minutes, or until the bread crumbs begin to get golden brown and a piece of fish tested with a fork flakes easily. Do not overcook!
Caper Dill Mayo
  • Using a knife, carefully remove and discard the peeling from the pickle, then mince the soft inner flesh.
  • Add the capers to the minced pickle, and using a fork, crush them together against the bottom of the bowl.
  • Add the mayo, garlic powder, and dried parsley to the pickle/caper mixture and blend well.
  • Serve with baked fish bites.
