This recipe was given to me by Colleen Guy. I believe the first time I tasted it we were enjoying a fish fry....Kenneth Guy style. It soon became a favorite at our almost monthly "Headland Breakfast Gatherings". Well, now the last few times Pastor Doug Wilson has offered to come and cook fish at our Bible Conference ,Colleen and I have been assigned to prepare this recipe. It is another recipe that had to be blogged.
