Made this dish last night as directed, but it just did not come together as it should have. For some reason, the cheese sauce was too thick and while I tried to thin it - I couldn't get the right consistency. We tried to eat the fish without the sauce, but it just wasn't the expected outcome. I would like to try this dish again by changing the cheese sauce. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a roasting rack with cooking spray and place over baking sheet.
  3. Rinse fish with cold water and pat dry. Discard marinade. In one dish, stir together the cornmeal, chip crumbs, salt and pepper. In another dish stir together 2 T. lime juice and canola oil. Dip fillets into lime and oil, then into cornmeal mixture to coat. Place fish onto roasting rack.
