Fried Crispy Onion Mahi Mahi Fish

One evening I wanted some really good fried fish. Opened up my freezer and took a glance at what I had. My goal was to make the skin really crunchy, so I opened up my pantry and saw that I had some leftover crispy onions. Did whatever I was craving that day and I absolutely loved it. Give this recipe a try, we would love to hear the feedback!
