My family loved this recipe, I'll definately make it again. I didn't have any stone ground mustard, so I used regular, and I skipped the hot sauce because our kids are small. It was great! Thanks for the recipe!!
Great technique but use cod or another white fish - basa can originate where fish farming practices are questionable (eg China).
I liked this- it was so easy and had a really good flavor. I've never had Basa before- it's a very mild fish. I made the sauce a few hours before dinner (using light mayo). I brushed the olive oil on the fillets and coated them with regular dry bread crumbs- I didn't bother spraying any more olive oil on. These baked up with a nice coating that was pretty crispy even without the extra olive oil. The lemon and garlic on top is a nice addition. Served with Parmesan Noodles from this site and a green salad.
This recipe is super easy and quick to make!! I used panko (japanese breadcrumbs) instead of the melba toast and I amped up the sauce a bit with extra hot sauce, some lemon juice and a dash of cayenne. My husband and I really loved it and will use this recipe on other white fish like tilapia and sole.
This recipe was very yummy. We had never had basa before but it is a tasty fish. Just a few revisions to the original recipe: I used 1/8 c. light mayo and 1/8 c. light sour cream (instead of 1/4 c. mayo), used chipolte mustard and omitted the hot sauce and also used breadcrumbs instead of the toasts. Turned out fantastic!
My husband and I took one bite of this and agreed that it tastes like we ordered it at a restaurant. We didn't have Melba toast so we just used crushed bread crumbs (shake and bake). I also couldn't find any capers at my grocery store. The sauce tasted great without them. We will definitely be having this again.
Sensational! I made this a few nights ago and the fiance loved it! The sauce is very similar to "fry sauce" that Americans love. To lighten it up however, I used half mayo half plain yogurt (next time I'll stick to the recipe because it became a little runny). I didn't have any Melba toast or crackers on hand so instead I used finely crushed corn flakes. It tasted great compared to the usual bread-and-fry. This is the standard now for making Basa at my place!
Tasty, tasty sauce! My wife loved it, even without the melba crumbs. Must make a point of trying them next time.
