Easy Baked Whitefish Ole'

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

I got this recipe off a package of frozen whitefish, and it was a lifesaver when I was drawing a mental block on what to cook one night. I added some black pepper to this, and I served the fish with rice, some corn, and a salad. Although this serves four, we can easily eat this all between the two of us.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Rub fillets with oil and place on a lightly greased baking sheet or dish.
  3. Spoon salsa and squeeze lime juice on top of fish.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.
  5. Top with fresh cilantro.

Have been making this for a long time but use haddock because we can buy it very fresh here. I agree with another reviewer that less oil can be used but I don t like anything oily. I do add some chopped black Olives (because my husband loves them) and sometimes add shredded Monterey Jack cheese at the end and put under the broiler. Very versatile little recipe always alwayis tasty. Thanks and do recommend it.

SUPER easy and tasty enough. I find salsa to be a very quick, simple solution to cooking easy chicken thighs, too. Thanks for sharing!

Sorry this was just ok, we found it had too much oil. We did like the salsa and lime with the fish and when I make it again I will just spray the fish with veggie spray. Thanks for posting I will make it again.
