Yield: Serves 4

Wasabi Crusted Fish Fillets


  • 1 lb (0.5 kg) cod or halibut fillets
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 tsp wasabi paste
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs)
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Pat fillets dry with paper towels.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, wasabi paste and salt; spread on both sides of fillets.
  4. Combine panko and paprika in a pie plate.
  5. Working with one piece at a time, dip fillets into panko mixture, pressing lightly so that panko mixture adheres; turn to coat both sides.
  6. Place fillets in a single layer on a greased rimmed baking sheet.
  7. Bake, uncovered, for 10 - 12 minutes per inch of thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
