DIRECTIONS

  • Place oven rack in the top 1/3 of the oven and preheat it to 425 degrees F.
  • Set a wire rack in a baling pan and coat the rack lightly with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a food processor, fitted with the metal blade, or in a blender, combine the cornflakes, chili powder, thyme and garlic powder.
  • Use the on/off pulses until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Transfer the mixture to a shallow bowl or plate.
  • If the fillets are large, cut them into serving-size pieces.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, salt and pepper and then dip the fish into the mixture to coat.
  • Dredge the fish into the crumb mixture next, turning to coat both sides.
  • Place the fillets on the prepared rack and repeat with remaining fillets.
  • Coat both sides of the fillets with the non-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake 14-18 minutes, or until the crumb coating is golden brown and crisp and the fish is opaque at the center.
  • Serve with lemon wedges.
