Cornflake-Crusted Halibut with Chile-Cilantro Aioli

Cornflake-Crusted Halibut with Chile-Cilantro Aioli Recipe
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro
We loved this halibut recipe so much, we gave it our highest rating. Make the mayonnaise-based aioli ahead, if you like. To crush the cornflakes, place them in a zip-top plastic bag, seal, and press with a rolling pin.


4 servings (serving size: 1 fish fillet, about 1 tablespoon mayonnaise mixture, and 1 lemon wedge)
