I love fish, but I've been relying too much on Salmon recently, and getting burned out. Any suggestions for some unique fish recipes?

It's definitely important to mix in some different fish and utilize some different cooking methods. So you don't get totally tired of something that's good for you. Try out some white fleshed fish; catfish are easy to come by, and even farm raised wall eye (which is delicious) it turning up in some markets.

I have a good recipe for you. It's quick and easy to pull off; it's also a people-pleaser.

In this recipe I call for flounder but you can really use any fish. I've done it with catfish and even fresh sardines
Here we go:

Potato Chip Crusted Flounder

2 flounder filets (aprox. 12-16 oz. total)
1 bag kettle cooked chips (approx 2.5 oz.)
¼ cup of your favorite herbs, chopped (rosemary, dill, cilantro, parsley etc.),

1. In the bag, crush the potato chips to roughly the size of large breadcrumbs.
2. In the bag, shake in the chopped herbs along with cracked black pepper.
3. Season the flounder filets, lay them out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle a healthy coating of the potato chips over the fish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Of course I messed up my own recipe and bought the wrong potato chips. I didn't get the thicker kettle cooked ones, further proof that it does make a difference. They stay crunchier through the cooking process.
For my herbs I used a little medley from my window box:parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme (or the Simon & Garfunkel as i like to call it) Any combo or just individual herb would do.

When you season your fish, just remember that the potato chips probably already have a fair amount of salt on them, so pace yourself.

I love this with a squeeze of lemon.
