Basic baked fish. Flounder works well in this recipe also.

Easy recipe and healthy too. I used a gluten-free dressing and bread crumbs to make this recipe diet suitable. Cooked up great in the oven. I think the trick is to have the oven fully heated and the oven rack in the briler jeeps the fresh crisp coating underneath the fish while it bakes. I would recommend keeping a fine coating of the cornmeal mixture. I used basa fillets which seems to be the closest Aussie equivelant to catfish fillets. Photo also being posted
