4 pickerel filets (2 fish)
1 sleeve of Saltine Crackers (un-salted tops), finely crushed.
2 Cups Water
2 tsp. Salt
2 cups Buttermilk *
Soak fish filets in a bowl of salted water for at least 2 hours; drain, rinse and then soak filets in the Buttermilk for another hour.
Drain and rinse filets and pat dry with paper towels. Thoroughly coat filets in the crushed cracker crumbs and place on a foil lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Liberally sprinkle filets with Paprika and drizzle lightly with Olive Oil.
Bake in a pre-heated 375°F oven for about 20-25 minutes, depending on the thickness of your filets. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
Serve with lemon wedges and enjoy!
* Buttermilk can be made at home by taking 1 cup of milk and adding 1 Tbsp of Lemon Juice or Vinegar. Stir and let sit for a few minutes and then use as directed above.
