I had never heard of this fish but it was on sale and looked good so I tried it and I am not sorry. I looked up Capensis on the Internet and found that is a relative to Hake. It has a nice light flavor similar to Basa. There were no recipes for it so I threw this one together - We liked it and I hope you do too. If you want it to be crisper on the outside dip the filets in egg/milk mixture before dipping in the Panko crumbs. Serve with a wedge of lemon and some Tartar sauce
