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
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.
