Baked White Fish

Recipe by Jean 7
READY IN: 30mins


  • 1
    lb white fish fillet (3-4)
  • 4
    skinned sliced tomatoes (see Note 1)
  • 12
    teaspoon sugar
  • 3
    tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 14
    cup melted butter
  • 2
    tablespoons flour
  • 1
    tablespoon sweet paprika
  • 1
    teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, to taste
  • 1
    pinch salt, to taste
  • 1
    pinch pepper, to taste
  • 1
    lemon, cut in wedges


  • Grease an 8 1/2" X 11" pan. (Or use baking spray.)
  • Cover the bottom of the baking dish with the sliced tomatoes.
  • Sprinkle with sugar and parsley.
  • Arrange fish on top.
  • Mix melted butter, paprika, Old Bay seasoning, salt, pepper and flour.
  • Spread over fish.
  • Bake at 400F for 20 min or until fish flakes easily with fork.
  • Squeeze lemon juice over casserole before serving and serve with additional lemon wedges.
  • Note 1: Put tomatoes in a bowl and blanch with boiling water. After a minute or so the skins will slip right off.
  • Note 2: For fillets, I like to overlap them slightly so that the thin parts are not over cooked. For steaks, use a pan that will be nicely filled by one layer of fish.
  • Note 3: If using frozen fish, I prefer to use it unthawed and just lengthen the cooking time a few minutes. Makes a quick family supper dish when time is short and nothing is thawed.
  • I like this with a green vegetable and white rice.

“This is based on a recipe I got from a friend 30 years ago. It was called Greek Fish but it didn't seem particularly Greek to me. The original recipe called for Haddock or white fish - I usually use snapper or cod fillets. Hope you like it - this is the first recipe I have posted!”
