Put the fish on a rack in a pan in the oven. The rack will allow heat circulation under the fish. The microwave will make it all soggy. I've never tried re-frying.

I wouldn't try refrying it. Some of the accumulated moisture while it was refrigerated could make things worse. Go with Andy's suggestion. I've done that with other fried items with good success.

The toaster oven works well for that.

Any oven, I prefer convection, will do a great job of reheating your fried goodies.

Ditto that. Andy knows what he's talking about. Kim does it all the time, and it's just as good the second time.

I also like fried foods cold...

Beat me to it Vera - I am a broiler fan when it comes to fried food. It gets the "crisp" in their fairly quickly. I don't put it right up on top but down a bit. If I feel it's already warm but not crisping up I will move it up.
