  • Dip fish into butter and then coat each fillet well with bread crumbs.
  • Place bread coated fillets into baking dish.
  • Repeat until all fish fillets are covered.
  • Spoon the remaining herb butter mixture over fish.
  • I also use a pastry brush to lightly tap the tops of the breaded fish to make sure it is all cover.
