This is another unique way fishermen can enjoy catch of the day. The recipe was contributed by Merland Albert and I encourage that you visit JuliosCornChips.com to learn more about their full product line. Julio's products are available at HEB and Wal-Mart Super Centers. I prepared Merland's recipe recently and my dinner guests absolutely raved about everything. The fillets were crunchy and delicious and the corn medley was to-die-for! Pam Johnson
