Servings 4


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix cornmeal, paprika, thyme, salt, celery seeds, onion powder, garlic powder and pepper together in a shallow soup bowl. Pour milk into another shallow soup bowl.

Coat a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray. Dredge fillets first in milk, then in cornmeal mixture, coating both sides and pressing cornmeal mixture gently to adhere. Place coated fillets on baking sheet and lightly spray each with cooking spray.

Bake until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Let stand at room temperature 2 minutes before serving. Serve with lemon wedge.

This recipe yields 4 servings; 1 fillet and 1/4 of asparagus per serving.
