I used 4 sole fillets. I sprinkled them with a touch of salt, along with the paprika. After sauteeing the onion mixture for the allotted time, the onion wasn't really soft, but I mixed in the crumbs anyway and put it on the fish. After baking, the onions in the topping were absolutely perfect. The flavour of this recipe is truly fantastic!

The mustard mixture was very dry by the time the onions were softened and the flavor was not very pronounced for my tastebuds. I used panko for the breading. Next time I'd saute the onions first, then add the mustard and other topping ingredients.

I made this for dinner last night. It was a very nice way to serve white fish. I used yellowtail (amberjack) filets, caught by my DH. My filets were fairly thick-I approximately doubled the baking time. The mustard mixture smelled so good while sauteeing-and is quite spicy (I guess that is why it is called "deviled"). I topped with fresh onion rye bread crumbs. BTW I think the mustard topping mixture would make a great condiment for grilled burgers or hot dogs. I'm thinking summer...
