These flaky fish fillets from Pix Stidham of Exeter, California get plenty of fresh flavor from onions and tomato, plus a little zip from cayenne pepper. "This recipe is particular favorite of my family's" Pix notes. "The fish doesn't get's moist and delicious."

"This is a really simple and fresh recipe. The pimentos and cayenne pepper add a bit of heat, while the breadcrumbs give the moist fish a good crunch of texture."
