Directions

  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 family loved this recipe, I'll definately make it again. I didn't have any stone ground mustard, so I used regular, and I skipped the hot sauce because our kids are small. It was great! Thanks for the recipe!!

What a Dish!

I liked this- it was so easy and had a really good flavor. I've never had Basa before- it's a very mild fish. I made the sauce a few hours before dinner (using light mayo). I brushed the olive oil on the fillets and coated them with regular dry bread crumbs- I didn't bother spraying any more olive oil on. These baked up with a nice coating that was pretty crispy even without the extra olive oil. The lemon and garlic on top is a nice addition. Served with Parmesan Noodles from this site and a green salad.

This recipe is super easy and quick to make!! I used panko (japanese breadcrumbs) instead of the melba toast and I amped up the sauce a bit with extra hot sauce, some lemon juice and a dash of cayenne. My husband and I really loved it and will use this recipe on other white fish like tilapia and sole.
