Default Pompano Question

What's the best way to clean and cook pompano? I have been catching a few of them last season and this season but gave them to my fishing partner. My girlfriend doesn't eat a lot of seafood but I thought she might like pompano since many say they are the best eating fish you can catch. Normally I would fillet them then skin them and fry up fish fingers for her. Your crunchiest fish fry would be appreciated too.I have used Zatarain's and flour/bread crumbs both with an egg wash with decent luck. The Zat's usually runs a bit salty and not thick enough for us, but I don't know if I trust the bread crumb flour recipe in terms of flavor...
