Oven-Fried Fish

This is a really nice way to "fry" fish without the mess. The cornmeal really adds great flavor. The key is heating up that pan in the oven.

Oven-Fried Fish (Adapted from Cooking Club)

1lb tilapia fillets (or cod)
1/2 t salt
1/2 c flour
3/4 c buttermilk
1 c yellow cornmeal

Place a heavy rimmed baking sheet in oven. Heat oven to 450. Meanwhile, salt fish. In separate shallow bowls, place flour, buttermilk, and cornmeal. Coat fish in flour. Shake off excess flour. Next dip fish in buttermilk. Next, coat the fish in cornmeal. Set aside on a dish.
When oven is preheated, remove pan from oven. Spray with cooking spray. Place fish on pan and spray fish with oil. Return pan to oven. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and turn fish. Cook fish for another 5-8 minutes; until flakey. Serve with tartar sauce.

Tartar Sauce

1/2 c fresh mayonnaise (and yes you have to make it)
3 Cornichons, minced)

Combine ingredients

It really went nice with that Two-Potato Gratin:
Don't worry we had salad too - I didn't skip veg
Make sure that you shake off that excess flour. I think I could've done a better job with that. You can also use Wondra instead of regular flour. That will give you a thinner coating. In this case I think I preferred the thicker coating.
