Review of Andy's Fish Breading

by StevenHelmer

I purchased this product earlier today and used it while making fish for dinner. Read to find out what I thought of it.

Product Description: Pre-packaged dry fish breading from the Andy's brand that is designed to be used on raw fish before frying or baking it. I purchased this product earlier today at one of our local grocery stores for $2.12 and used it on some fresh tilapia fillets before I baked them and served them as a family dinner.


My wife and I made a Costco run yesterday morning and, even though they weren't on our list, ended up purchasing a package of tilapia fillets. Since it had been a while since we had eaten fish, I decided to make some of the fillets for dinner tonight and, figuring it would add some additional flavor, picked up a bag of Andy's fish breading while I was out doing some other grocery shopping earlier today.

I had seen this breading at one of our local grocery stores a couple of times and thought it looked interesting. After trying it, I do have to say it exceeded my expectations.

Using this breading was relatively easy. In fact, it worked pretty much the same way as our normal homemade breading does. All I had to do was soak the fillets in an egg bath and add the breading to them. Prep time took only a few minutes and the fish was ready to go in the oven as soon as it was preheated.

I had originally planned on cooking the fish in my fryer. However, I changed my mind at the last second and ended up baking the tilapia fillets instead. As it turns out, the breading worked really well for this and ended up being surprisingly crispy when it came out of the oven. This was definitely something I appreciated because that crispiness did add something to the fish.

As far as seasonings go, my wife and I did think this fish breading was a bit on the spicy side. This wasn't too big of a deal at first and even our oldest daughter seemed to like it. However, after the first couple of fillets, the spiciness did end up being a bit too much. In other words, the flavor was decent in small doses but not something I would enjoy if we were expecting to have larger servings.

Final Opinion

Overall, I thought this was a good purchase, at least as far as breading goes. However, like many things, personal preference is important and, if you don't like spicy food, this might not be a good choice for you.

StevenHelmer, Thank you for product lines, pretty pictures and practical information.
Generally, I appreciate fish non-breaded. However, I also appreciate knowing about a product such as this that might fit the bill for those who like their fish breaded and I've run out of what I make fresh and from scratch.

Would frying or grilling have diminished the spiciness?
