I love fish, but since I am the only one in my family that eats it, I never cook it at home. This is an easy recipe to start with for me. Recipe notes: In Key West, the fish fillets would be grouper, but sole, flounder, or whatever is on sale will work.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Melt butter in a 9x13 baking pan in the oven.
  3. In a shallow dish, combine cracker crumbs, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and garlic powder.
  4. Dip fillets in melted butter, then in cracker-crumb mixture.
  5. Arrange fish in a single layer in the baking pan, sprinkle with lime juice and bake for about 20 minutes, until fish is tender and flakes easily with a fork.

I used a nice 1 1/2 to 2" thick piece of grouper, and this was just fabulous! Loved the lime juice with complimented the other flavors perfectly. Since my fish was so thick, it was almost 8 ounces so halved the rest of the ingredients to serve one. Cooked a bit longer because of the thickness, but just by a couple of minutes.

So tasty and so easy! I used butter crackers instead of saltines because I had some on hand, otherwise made as directed. I was skeptical about the lime with the other flavors but it was really good. I used tilapia and the fish was perfectly cooked in 20 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I also used tilapia. This is a great recipe for white fish. I used less butter to make it healthier. The seasoning was perfect. Thanks AZPARZYCH :) Made for PRMR tag game
