There are quite a few ways to make meat and as many to prepare fish. Here are some various ways you can try with fish: baking, broiling, microwaving, grilling, poaching, crockpot cooking, deep frying and pan frying. Additionally you can roast it, braise it, oven fry it and much more.

Various types of baked fish recipes exist, an acknowledgement that seafood is a integral part of a good diet. Fish has necessary nutrients like omega-fatty acids. In addition to being low in saturated fats, it also contains great quantities of vitamins and minerals.

According to research, eating fish can aid in the prevention of heart disease, dementia and strokes. Other studies have suggested that having fish as a regular part of your diet can even improve brain function and memory. Despite this, nearly all kinds of seafood contain trace amounts of mercury. The mercury risk is very high for pregnant women, so it is recommended that those who are pregnant or nursing avoid mercury-prone fish, such as tuna.

Great dinners can come from baked fish, and great baked fish begins with a great baked fish recipe. Baking fish in the oven is simple, quick and does not include the need for going all the way to the store and spending a ton of funds on expensive ingredients.

Some people stress about what the fish is baked in. Should they use a casserole dish, a pan or even tin foil? The truth is, it matters not. The dinner will still be incredibly healthy and undoubtedly delicious.

You can bake almost any type of fish. Some types of fish, however, are suited particularly well to baking. Here are examples of some: flounder, haddock, halibut, striper, tuna, and grouper.

Bake EZ Fish Fillets

3/4 pound white fish fillets --- you can use grouper, cod or haddock. (I used cod and asked the fish person for
nonstick cooking spray --- you can use Pam or store generic
A small tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice (or lime juice)
A scant tablespoon mild mayo
1/8 tsp garlic powder (or onion powder)
A few crushes of black pepper
1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
A small tbs melted, unsalted butter
Chopped fresh parsley, if you have some


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a small baking dish with nonstick spray, then gently put the fish fillets in it. Tuck ends of fish in if your fillets are of different thicknesses. You want them to bake as evenly as possible.
  2. In a small, separate mixing bowl, mix the lemon or lime juice, the mayo, garlic or onion powder and pepper. Don't fret if it looks curdled; it's fine. When it has evenly mixed, spread it evenly over the top of the fish fillets. Take the fresh breadcrumbs and sprinkle them over the top of the fillets coated with the mayo mixture. Then, drizzle the melted butter over the breadcrumbs for a golden, crispy crust.
  3. Bake the fish until cooked through. Typically, this can take 18-20 minutes, or until it flakes easily when tested with a fork. You'll need to regulate the times according to the thickness of your fish. Spread the chopped parsley over the top before serving.

      La Thing and Rosemay. Thanks for the compliments. Mayo is somewhat overused where I live, but it does come out delicious with baked fish!

      I have never thought about using mayo while baking fish. Of course we don't have most of the fish you mention in NZ but similar white fish.

      Thank you for this recipe.
