Anyone who loves fish will agree that fish fillets make preparing and cooking fish so much easier. There's no need to do the dirty work of gutting the fish, removing fish scales and skin, and plucking out fish bones. 

Fish is naturally easy to cook and can be simply steamed, fried, or even left raw if it's fresh enough. If you love fish fillets, you might also love it when these fillets are coated in breadcrumbs to make super crispy and satisfying meals.
