My new neighbor has just given me some fresh tomatoes from his garden. This is one of the dishes I used them in! This is also a great recipe to use up any leftover tomato sauce you might have in the fridge.
- 1 lb white fish fillet (flounder, cod, halibut, or turbot will work well)
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup tomato sauce (great for leftover sauce!)
- 1⁄4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1⁄2 cup scallion, minced
- 1⁄2 fresh basil leaf, shredded
- 1 -2 fresh summer tomatoes, thinly sliced
- fish seasoning, to taste
- salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Add tomato sauce to the bottom of a baking dish.
- Rinse fish filets and pat dry.
- Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste on both sides and the fish, and lay in baking dish.
- I like to also sprinkle my filets with a bit of fish seasoning, or flavored salt, to taste.
- On a cutting board, mince the scallions, and chop basil.
- I add the breadcrumbs right to the pile of fresh herbs, and roughly chop.
- Top the filets with the herb and bread crumb mixture, and then top with the slices of fresh tomato.
- Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through.
Made this with fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden. Very good. Drizzled a little balsamic vinegar over it and that added even more flavor! Will definitely be making again.
Excellent taste and simple. I sauted the tomato slices with the onion some before topping the fish with them and I added a splash of fresh lemon. One of my favorites now. I used Orange Roughy.
