I liked this recipe. I loved Luby's fish - don't live near one anymore. I would love to come up with a way to crisp the outer part of the mayo. I agree it is flavorful. I use much less mayo and half-fat mayo, the kind made with olive oil. Thank you.

This is a very easy but delicious recipe, one that I will make again and again. thank you for posting I did not use as much mayo as called for, I found it did not really need that much

I used Schwan's frozen blue hake. I didn't think the flour would stick to the frozen fish, so I omitted it. I sprinkled the fish with a seasoned salt and spread it with mayo. Because the fish was frozen, I baked it at 400Ëš for 30 minutes. (These were "fat" pieces.) The result was delicious. The only thing I would change next time, is to spread the mayo a little thicker. My husband loved it, too. I'll be using this recipe often.
