This is a wonderful alternative to fried fish, coating the fish with butter and baking at high heat is the secret to the success of this recipe --- use meaty fillets of fish for this if possible --- FOR LOW-FAT OPTION; whisk together 2 egg whites with 2 tablespoon cold water, dip the fish into the mixture, allow excess to drip off, use in place of melted butter.

My husband is a seafood lover but I am not. I found this recipe recommended by others that don't favor seafood and I thought I'd give it a try. I cleaned my plate! I will definitely make again!

The basil and the paprika overpowered the fish flavor. I should cut down on the amount next time. Also, I didn't get enough crunch as I would like.

I love this Fish Recipe! It is now my 'go to' recipe for when I bake fish! However, I kick it up a notch by adding some Panko Breadcrumbs to the plain for extra crunch, and also putting it under the broiler for a minute or two for a bit of extra crunch.
