DIRECTIONS
  1. In a large bowl combine first 11 ingredients; whisk marinade together.
  2. Place fish fillets in a bowl or a ziplock bag. Cover fish with marinade. Let sit for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. If grilling fish, place over hot grills until brown.
  4. If frying the fish, pour the flour into a bowl. In a second bowl, combine milk and eggs. In a third bowl, combine cornmeal, garlic powder, paprika, dried oregano, and salt and pepper. Dredge fillets in flour, then into the egg wash, and finally dip them in the cornmeal mixture.
  5. In a large skillet heat 2 inches of canola oil. When the oil reaches 375 degrees F., or 1 drop of egg wash cooks and rises to the top immediately, add the fillets to the oil, 2 at a time. Fry the fillets until golden brown. Fillets can also be deep fried
