From an old cookbook.


  1. Arrange fish in a single layer ub a greased baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle with vinegar and salt; dot with butter.
  3. Bake, basting every 5 minutes with crisp brown butter scraped from the edges of the pan, coating each piece completely.
  4. Should be finished cooking at about 25-30 minutes.

I am not sure mine browned the way it "should have" but it tasted great. All 4 kids liked it, and that says a lot. So I am making it again today, I think I am going to bake it at a bit higher temp and maybe finish it off in a sautee pan to brown it...but we'll see. Everyone liked it the way it was so why mess with success?

I must have cooked this at to low of a temperature because my butter didn't brown like it should have. I cooked at 350* since the cooking temperature wasn't listed. The flavor of the fish was good though. I will have to prepare it again and cook it at a higher temperature. Thanks Oolala. Bullwinkle.
