Baked Fish Fillets

Baked Fish Fillets created by breezermom

This is a wonderful alternative to fried fish, coating the fish with butter and baking at high heat is the secret to the success of this recipe --- use meaty fillets of fish for this if possible --- FOR LOW-FAT OPTION; whisk together 2 egg whites with 2 tablespoon cold water, dip the fish into the mixture, allow excess to drip off, use in place of melted butter.

    I just want to bake the fish with a butter/garlic salt/ lemon sauce. Challenge is i don't know what temperature to cook them on, how long, should i soak them in the sauce/put it on right before cooking/during cooking, etc. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Daddyman

    We are trying to increase the amount of fish we eat - this recipe will certainly help us to do so! We really really enjoyed it. My husband was just going to taste it, but ended up eating a large fillet, smacking his lips. I used about 2 pounds of cod fillets, using the lemon pepper option. 1 Tbsp. paprika suited us perfectly, and gave a beautiful color to the fish. Served with basmati rice and boiled greens. Yum!

    This was the best fish my husband said he's ever eaten! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe. I was very fast and easy to make at the last minute!! I will definately be making this dish again.

    Yum my kids and I loved this fish. I did have to sub in a few cracker crumbs as i was out of breadcrumbs but it still worked like a charm. The fish baked up so nice and crispy. We loved it and I loved the fact that there was no oil (except for the butter). Thanks Kittencal for another winner in our books.

    This was wonderful!! My kids (9,7&4) loved this and they are picky eaters. I used Tilapia and cut it into 1 inch nuggets. I only buttered one side and coated the entire nugget in the bread crumb mixture ( I used the seasoned salt as suggested). I baked for 10min and then an additional 10 under the broiler (on low). It did not crisp up but that might just be because my fish was semi frozen. I baked it on a foil lined cookie sheet.
