Latchy this is yummy. I had it all ready for Dave to cook and we cooked it on the BBQ. For a start we were concerned that the cornmeal was very dry but it turned out great. It really held the moisture in the fish and gave the outside such a crunchy texture. Amber absolutely loved it. The sweet chilli mayo is perfect with the fish. Definitely make again :)
This is such a simple dish to prepare and yet so tasty. The cornmeal coating really adds a delicious flavour to the white fish fillets. Much nicer than using breadcrumbs. I had dinner on the table within 15 minutes. I was tempted to put more sweet chilli sauce in the mayo but I am so glad I didn't. This is a well-balanced dish were the flavours of the ingredients compliment each other. Thank you for such an easy and satisfying meal. This is a keeper.
