Baking fish has always been an intimidating task to most (not least my wife) for some reason. I never saw it as difficult protein to work with, but I can see how the balance of having a “fishy” tasting fish versus one with over powering flavour, or overcooking versus undercooking can be challenging. Here’s a quick recipe that is sure to bring some confidence to your fish baking game.
A half hour
- Great flavour and Omega 3 source
- Light on the stomach
- Simple ingredients
- 2 lbs (.8kg) Fresh fish, preferably white fish or tilapia
- 3 tbsp Melted Butter
- 1 tspn Paprika
- ½ cup Skim milk
- ¾ cup Bread crumbs
- Lemon wedges for garnish
Kitchen things you’ll need:
- An oven tray
- A bowl to dip into skim milk
- A plate to dip in bread crumbs
- Wash the fillets and dry it with paper towels, then, lightly grease a baking pan, meanwhile, preheat the oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Dip the fillets into the skim milk followed by a dip in the breadcrumbs. Then, place the fillets in the pan and pour the melted butter over it. Sprinkle some amount of paprika as well.
- Once done, place it in the oven and bake the fish uncovered for around 10 minutes. Add some lemon wedges while serving
- Instead of paprika which might be strong for kids, try garlic salt or fish seasoning
- An alternative to bread crumbs, and for extra crunch use Panko (Japanese bread crumbs).
