This was great! I doubled the hot sauce (used regular Tabasco,) but added red pepper, garlic powder, crushed rosemary, and black pepper to the corn meal. Pan-fried it in an olive oil/balsamic vinegar mix with a dash of butter. Scrumptious and crisp with lemon squeezed over the top.
This was delicious, and very easy. I baked it on 500, turning halfway through. It came out nice and crunchy. Changes I'll make for next time: I'll at least double the hot sauce, and I'll use a lot less yogurt and paint on because it seemed a bit wasteful to throw it all out. But this was great, and I never would have thought of it, so thanks for posting!
We loved this simple easy recipe. I used Denzel's Kamakazi hot sauce (it is hot), mixed it with 2% yogurt and painted it on the fish. Then I immediately put on the cormeal. I left the coated fish in the fridge for 3 hours. The flavor came through and I had no problen with the cornmeal flaking off. Will definately make this recipe again, Served with both lemon & Tatare sauce Thanks Tia Mouse for a winner
Outstanding, certainly! Did everything as described, except for the frying. I used a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and baked my fillets at 450 F for about 16 minutes. They did not brown at all, and I was leery about using the broiler with the parchment paper. I wonder if using a sprayed, foil-lined baking sheet would be better - you could broil them for just a minute or so at the end to brown them a bit. My DH, who does not care for fish very much said "I'd eat that again", which in itself is a compliment. I was impressed with the marinade and the cornmeal coating! I am not a huge fan of cornmeal, but it certainly suited the halibut fillets to a "T". Simple recipe and easy to put together. I served DH's with fries, beet and dill pickles and mine with a side of bread and celery dressing. Mmmm, good. Thanks for a keeper!
Finally got to write my review for this worthy recipe. Right up front let me say that I am not a fish lover, but do have it fresh at least once a week. I followed the recipe as written using tilapia fillets. Very tasty but I felt it needed some salt. Next time I will add salt to the cornmeal. AND.... next time I will try to bake it!
I loved the flavor of this fish. It was so simple and with so little ingredients. The only change I made was I added 2 tsp hot sauce! I loved the flavor the yogurt gave the fish. Will definately be making again. Made this for Fall PAC.
I made this tonight for DH and myself. I'm on Weigh Watchers and wanted an easy, lo-cal recipe for white fish. Used sour cream instead of yogurt since that's what I had in the house, and used 1 teaspoon Slap Your Mama cajun seasoning instead of tabsco. Tasted great. Really easy to make. Had it with a side of sliced cucumbers which was a nice pairing of the hot and cool. Definitely will use this recipe again.
WOW. This is great. I did change it up a bit though. I don't keep cornmeal in the house as a staple, so every time I went to the store I forgot if it was cornmeal or cornflakes - I picked up cornflake crumbs, oops. So, using what I had, I followed the rest of the recipe, only opting for baking instead of frying. I tried to bake at 425 but that didn't do the trick, so I cranked it up to 500 -and it was better. I placed on a foil lined pan that had been sprayed with Pam spray. I then drizzled a little bit of olive oil over the top and sprayed it again with Pam spray. DH said it is a great recipe and he wants it again. Thanks for posting, TM!!
