READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Gerry

We like using a variety of dressings when baking fish - this is one of our favorites. Choose your fish - make the dressing - stuff - bake and enjoy. We usually use salmon.

Top Review by The Flying Chef

This was excellent!! I served it with salmon but I just bought salmon fillets and topped them with this dressing. I cooked the salmon skin side down in a fry pan and then pressed the dressing on top and finished in the oven, oobviously less cooking time than stated as I was not coking a whole fish. I will look forward to trying it that way next time. Everyone loved it and it made for a very elegant meal, served with asparagus and hollandaise sauce. A truly super dish and one we will be enjoying often I am sure. Cheers Gerry for another super yummy recipe, That got great reviews from all my dinner guests.
