Crusted Skillet Halibut Steaks With Chile-Cilanto Aioli

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

You can even add a couple tablespoons grated parmesan cheese to the cornflake mixture if desired, to easily crush the cornflakes place in a heavy ziploc bag, seal the bag and crush with a rolling pin, or you can purchase the cornflake crumbs in a box already crushed. Try to make the aioli up to a day in advance to blend flavors.

Very good fish! I used halibut steaks, as called for but I think almost any mild fish can be used with wonderful results, just changing the cooking time. There are some options in this recipe, so for the seasoning salt I used Old Bay and I used black pepper along with the cayenne. I also probably used a bit less corn flakes and milk that is called for. I think you can actually get away with using about 1/2 - 3/4 cup milk with this recipe. We can't wait to try this with other types of fish and using lemon pepper and other types of seasoning salt for a change. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
