Oh, and I do prefer a breaded fish to a battered fish. Not much chippies seem to do breaded up this way though, but I assume it's because we as a nation enjoy coating fucking everything in batter. But yeah, it creates a better fish/chip/vinegar/sauce dynamic, or something. I also make up my own spicy breadcrumb mix for cooking sole, which I've almost got down to a fine art.
Glad this thread got resurrected
