Baked perfectly, fish was moist with delicious topping. I had a 1.25 lb half of Walleye, my favorite fish. I baked it for 15 minutes and broiled it for 3 minutes from the lowest position in the oven. Not having Old Bay and liking suggestions of other reviewers, I added a bit of steak seasoning and garlic powder, used Panko crumbs and basted the topping with butter. It is easy to prepare... no dipping in flour, egg, and crumbs, no frying, and the result is delicious. As my piece of fish was 17"-18" long, I used my stove top double burner grill, greased. The fish did not stick making clean-up easy. Being easy and delicious, this is an excellent dish to serve company.
This is wonderful. Made a couple of changes, added 2 minced garlic cloves, added some romano cheese on top of of homemade seasoned crotons which I crunched up (I don't buy crotons always make them). Only reason I added the garlic is for some reason I'm on a garlic kick, I put it in everything, no I'm expecting lol, but crave it all the time. This was probably the best fish dish I've eaten in ages, and hubby really enjoyed it too. YUM! haha
This baked fish was wonderful. The only thing I changed was creole seasoning in place of the Old Bay I was out. I also used Panko bread crumbs for the bread crumbs. My mayo mixture did not turn out thick like a paste but more like a thick sauce. I also sprinkled a little salt and melted butter on top of the panko This is truly a restaurant quality dish. I will be making this many more times!
I wished I could have given this 10 stars!!! This is the most delicious fish I've ever tasted. Not a big fish fan, since don't like the lingering smell of it in my kitchen, however, this has no lingering aroma. Made it with light mayo and used olive oil instead of butter. Served it with Saffron rice and a side of stir fried broccoli! <br/><br/>Thank you so much for sharing your recipe with us!
