This was fantastic. DH said, "This is definitely a 'keeper'." The only change I made to the recipe was to use Lawrey's Tabasco seasoned salt. I forgot the lemon wedges at the end and it was still fabulous--I'll try that next time. It seemed to take more time to prepare than I expected, but it was well worth it. I served this with rice pilaf (recipe #5034) and green beans. Terrific. I will definitely make this again.

This fish was very good. I felt the recipe was easy to make. I would of liked a little more flavor. Next time I will increase the basil and pepper in the flour mixture. Loved the unique flavor the cashews gave it. Not owning a non-stick pan, I used a cast oron pan. I don't know if this effected the outcome or not.

Well now.... I wanted a light supper and got one. This recipe is quick, simple, is just what it says and does not "dress to impress". Chef says it all: "Buttery, Crisp and Delicious". Perfect in its simplicity, easy in its preparation and tastes good too. Served with home fries a small lettuce salad, and a glass of chilled Chardonnay, life just does not get any better. Thank you Chef, for this uncomplicated approach to food preparation... I will keep this one!!
