This is a simple dish. The fish is baked in white wine and parsley. The fish is very moist and tender when cooked. A simple but elegant dish

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 large fish fillets, no skin works best
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Preheat oven to moderate 180°C.
  2. Place fish side by side in a lightly greased baking dish.
  3. Season with salt and pepper. Pour the wine over the fish.
  4. Bake about 20 minutes- check the fish has cooked. Remove fish to a warmed plate and cover with aluminium foil to keep the fish warm.
  5. Place the baking dish over a high heat, or alternatively pour the juices into a saucepan. Boil the liquid rapidly until slightly reduced.
  6. Serve the fish with the sauce poured over the top. Garnish with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
  7. Great accompanied by a light sald or steamed green vegetables.

Ok, just not a favorite. I used sauvignon blanc, maybe will try sherry as Derf did. Could have been the fish (basa) too. Thanks.

This was a wonderful dish with very delicate flavor. The kids both loved it too and cleaned their plates. I love when something so easy is so good and well received. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5.

Such a simple, tasty recipe! We used cod and I lightly buttered the baking dish. It was perfect with some pureed cauliflower.
