Baked Crispy Fish

We are a fish-loving family. It’s nice to go to the store and pick up whatever is cheapest/freshest/on sale/etc. and know that we will like it somehow or another. I have yet to make a whole fish, which I want to try, but we like our fish in a skillet, grilled, from the sous vide, with sauce, baked, etc. This recipe is a good one if you have someone wanting to dip their toes into fish. We used rockfish instead of cod as the original recipe called for, just because of a sale, but it is a really nice mild fish that worked well for this. The fillets are super thin and you get a lot of crunchy bits to go with the fish. Everyone also really liked the dip.

I wanted to make fish in a new way, and this ended up being a nicely flavored and fairly healthy dish. If you want a light summery dish, this is perfect. I served it with some quinoa, but you can serve it with potatoes or another starch, too.

I did not have all of the ingredients she listed, so I made do with what I had and it still turned out well. I enjoyed how easy it was, except for when I forgot that the pan would be hot after it was out of the oven. Ugh! Another burn, another silly moment for me.

I was happy I got to use a birthday present for this, and they worked really well (sweet but with a subtle kick):

So, be careful with the hot pan, gather just a few ingredients, and then enjoy it for your next fish night!
