Oven Baked Maine Fish

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Maine-iac

Here's a Maine tradition. The lemon juice adds a great flavor to the fish and the mayonnaise keeps the fillets moist. Sure to please!

Maine-iac, this is a great recipe and so very simple to do! I prepared this for supper Saturday night and my husband kept remarking how moist and flavorful his fish was and HE gave it 5 stars! I used a beautiful 1 1/2 lb. piece of cod and was generous with the seasonings. I was surprised just how well the mayonnaise worked at keeping the fish moist! We eat seafood alot and I know this recipe will be used often. This recipe is a keeper, Maine-iac, and is going into my State of the "Art" seafood collection!
