I always like to keep something in the freezer that I can fix for a quick meal. Last night I was craving Nashville Hot Chicken but I only had fish fillets on hand. It hadn't occurred to me before but I thought those flavors might be good on fish so I tried it and it was great.
I'm sure this would be much better with fresh fried fish but honestly this was so quick and delicious I will definitely make this again. You can easily adjust the spice level to your personal taste. Using warm butter allows the fish to stay crispy, so no soggy crust.
