Wipe fillets with a damp cloth, sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a wide dish beat milk and cayenne with egg. Mix cornmeal and sesame seeds in a pie plate. Dust fish lightly with flour, dip in egg mixture, then turn in sesame mixture until evenly coated.

Set pieces on waxed paper to drive for 30 minutes; turn once after 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven and pan at 500°F for 10 minutes. Then, melt butter and oil in hot pan and lay fish in the hot fat, turning so both sides are coded, and return pan to oven. Oven fry fish, uncovered, about 10 minutes, until cooked.
