  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, thoroughly blend the mayonnaise, mustard, capers, ketchup, paprika, and hot pepper sauce.
  3. Brush the basa fillets with about 1 tablespoon olive oil, and roll in the crushed Melba toast to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Use a kitchen sprayer to lightly spray the coated fish with remaining olive oil. Arrange the fish in a baking dish and top with garlic and lemon slices.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork and coating is lightly browned. Serve with the mayonnaise sauce mixture.

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 oliv...

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 ...

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 (nex...

Tasty, tasty sauce! My wife loved it, even without the melba crumbs. Must make a point of trying them next time.

First of all, perhaps it’s just a personal aversion, but I did not, would not, could not use basa, “Vietnamese catfish.” Halibut was a much more appealing option to me, tho’ any mild flavored w...
