Pretty tasty used olive oil.. didn't make me feel as guilty. Would've use a little more cayenne pepper as I like my food with a kick. Overall nice, simple, fast dish.
Very good, loved the spiciness of it and will be making it again. I just made two fillets and used basa fish, but used the recipe amount of spices and had to use bran flakes, which had a nice nutty flavour. Thanks for posting.
Excellent flavor I didn't have wheat flakes cereal so I mixed half cornflake crumbs & half Panko - lovely crispy crust. I had a bit of sourcream dip left over and I lightly painted each side of the fish before dipping them in the seasoned crumbs. Enjoyed by all
