    About this recipe: A simple and versatile recipe that can be used with any fish. Basa fillets are baked with a seasoned crumb and served with a spicy mustard sauce. Basa is a Vietnamese river fish but your fishmonger should have it and you can find it at the fish counter at Tesco, Sainsbury's, etc.

    Serves: 4 

    • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon coarse mustard
    • 1 teaspoon capers
    • 1 teaspoon tomato ketchup
