I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Buttery Cheesy Basa

Basa has a light, firm texture with a mild fish taste. Perfect for my on-the-fence fish eaters. Using minimal ingredients you can whip up these flavourful fillets in next to no time! (Minimal ingredients for us means using what's in the house, as we're currently in covid isolation. So no nice green garnish 😞)

4 basa fillets
1 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup shredded asiago (+extra to sprinkle)
2 tbsps butter
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp dry basil
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
pinch cayenne
pinch turmeric
1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tsps lemon juice
1/4 cup panko crumbs
1 tsp light olive oil

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper then pat the fish fillets dry with a paper towel. If using frozen fillets, make sure they are fully thawed out. Salt and pepper both sides and lay fillets side by side on the lined baking sheet.
Combine the minced garlic, mayo, 1/4 cup asiago, butter, basil, lemon pepper, cayenne, turmeric, lemon zest and juice and spread on top of each piece of fish. Sprinkle more asiago to taste over each. Mix the panko and olive oil together and top the fish with the mixture.

Bake in a 400°F oven for 15 minutes then broil 3-4 minutes until lightly golden.
