  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, thoroughly blend the mayonnaise, mustard, capers, ketchup, paprika, and hot pepper sauce.
  3. Brush the basa fillets with about 1 tablespoon olive oil, and roll in the crushed Melba toast to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Use a kitchen sprayer to lightly spray the coated fish with remaining olive oil. Arrange the fish in a baking dish and top with garlic and lemon slices.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork and coating is lightly browned. Serve with the mayonnaise sauce mixture.

My husband and I took one bite of this and agreed that it tastes like we ordered it at a restaurant. We didn't have Melba toast so we just used crushed bread crumbs (shake and bake). I also co...

Sensational! I made this a few nights ago and the fiance loved it! The sauce is very similar to "fry sauce" that Americans love. To lighten it up however, I used half mayo half plain yogurt (nex...

Tasty, tasty sauce! My wife loved it, even without the melba crumbs. Must make a point of trying them next time.

Very tasty, with a few alterations. I substituted half sour cream/yogurt for the mayo and eliminated the paprika in favour of Italian seasonings.
