mmm We thought this fish coat was outstanding!! Delicious! I used a large steelhead trout filet, the coat stayed on perfectly. I used cajun seasoning because that's what I had, with that and the hot pepper sauce together was a wonderful flavourful coat with just the right amount of heat. Also had to use yellow cornmeal. We will definately make this again, we hadn't had trout for a long time and we would have been soo dissapointed had it not turned out right, this was perfect!

This was very tasty. It was a little difficult at first - getting the heat just right so it didnt stick but didnt burn- I wound up using medium then went to med low- slower cook time but better browning. Thanks for a great new way for us to do fish!
