Cornflake-Crusted Halibut with Chile-Cilantro Aioli

Jaime gave me this recipe and said she hadn't made it but thought it looked like my type of recipe. She sure was right! We loved this. Now, if only I could find halibut for less than $20/lb I'd be making this every month!

2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 serrano chile, seeded and minced
1 garlic clove, minced

1 cup milk
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
2 cups cornflakes, finely crushed
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets
Lemon wedges

To prepare aioli, combine first 4 ingredients, stirring well.
To prepare fish, combine milk and egg white in a shallow dish, stirring well with a whisk. Combine cornflakes, flour, salt, and black pepper in a shallow dish.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip fish in milk mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. (After browning in skillet, I had to bake at 350 for 5min to finish cooking through) Serve with mayonnaise mixture and lemon wedges.
