I love fish done this way. I don't have Old Bay so used a Cajun blend but followed the method using northern pike. Very easy and very tasty. I'll certainly do this again.

So simple and so yummy. I used cod fillets that were liberally sprinkled with the Old Bay seasoning. The fillets were placed on a rack with a small amount of water in the bottom of the pan. This helped to keep the fillets moist while they cooked. I will have to remember this for use with other types of fish. Thanks for sharing.
