1 1/2 pounds

Delicious! I took some to work and everyone liked it, but instead of using tomatillos (don't like them that much), I used regular tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe!
I was really physced by the concept of the tomatillo sauce...but after I tasted it was very disappointed. Added the juice of a whole lemon and 2 T. chopped cilantro. Served with blackend red snapper and it became very acceptable with the changes. Lemon and cilantro are highly recommended as are your choices of other herbs. Needs personal touchs...
Ironically I had bought basa fillets for the 1st time and some tomatillo and jalapenos. I was looking up a recipe for the fish and found this one. Amazing. My son and I prepared it together. Only thing I did was sprinkle a little lime juice on the fish before I cooked it. It was an excellent recipe.
This was a ver simple, but delicious recipe. We had never prepared basa before and the recipe was easy to follow and resulted in a meal that we would serve to guests on the first try.
This was really good. Only change I would make would be to fry the fish in a seperate pan or a grill pan to get it nice and crisp.
Had many tomatillos that I need to use. This was the perfect recipe and tasted delicious. I used Cod instead and it was yummy.
I made this dish, the basa fillets in tomatillo sauce, i I used the small tomatillos. At first it was bitter, but when you pour the sauce onto the fish it evens out. this dish was pretty good, i'd make it again.
Delicious!! This can be pretty spicy & that's exactly how my family likes it. I couldn't find tomatillos in my local supermarket and used mini tomatoes on the vine instead and I served it over jasmine rice. So superb that it was requested for dinner again tonight.
