One of the best parts of this recipe is that it is so versatile. You can serve this on a hamburger bun for a great fish sandwich, over Dirty Rice alongside some veggies for a complete dinner, or even in corn tortillas with some Cole Slaw for a terrific Cajun style taco. The cooked fish keeps well for a few days in the refrigerator.
