BASA, is a member of the catfish family, farm-raised in fresh water. The flavor of the basa is milder and more delicate than other carfish; when cooked it does not give off a "fishy" smell. Serve this recipe and you will be hooked!

What a great recipe! The crushed almonds were a great touch. Feel free to add some turmeric to the dry mix for a dash of colour.

My husband and kids really liked this. It's a keeper and I like that it is not fried.

A nice crispy coating! I bought some basa fillets today, for the very first time and wasn't sure how I was going to cook them. I'm so happy to have found your recipe, it was delicious. Thanks so much!
