Bayou Crisp Baked Fish



3 cup corn flake cereal
1 1/2 lb halibut, you may use cod or snapper fillets without skin, about 1-1/2
1 dash salt
1 dash pepper
2 tbsp honey Dijon mustard
1 tsp sweet paprika
1/4 - 1/2 tsp hot paprika or cayenne
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp ketchup


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

Place the cornflakes in a sealable plastic bag. Squeeze out excess air and seal. Crush the cornflakes fine with a rolling pin and transfer to a pie pan. Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry. With tweezers, remove any bones. Season the fish for the grown-ups with salt and pepper. Season the children's portions with salt. Cut the children's portions into nuggets or strips, if desired.

Place the nuggets or strips into a bowl, add the ketchup, and mix to combine. Roll the pieces in cornflakes until coated. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and lightly coat the top with cooking spray.

Combine the honey mustard, paprikas, garlic, thyme, and pepper in a small bowl. Spread the mixture on one side of the fish meant for the adults. Place the fish, coated side down, in cornflakes and spread the mixture on the sides and top. Roll in the cornflakes until coated. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and lightly coat the top with cooking spray.

Bake the nuggets for 10 - 15 minutes and the fillets for 15 - 20 minutes, or until done. Do not overcook. The center should no longer be translucent and the fish should flake easily with a fork.
