How to prepare fresh fish - Part 2

Yesterday's post was about frying fish.  If frying is not your thing, a healthier alternative is baking.  My mom said this is how my Grandma used to cook her fish...
Baked Fish

Fresh Fish Fillets (I used Rock)
1 large onion, thickly sliced
Very thin sliced potatoes (optional, I didn't use)
seasonings of choice (I used salt and pepper, Old Bay, and a little Cajun Seasoning. Lemon pepper would be good too.)
olive oil
fresh lemon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet with sides with olive oil (or non stick cooking spray. I love my Misto).  Place onion slices (and potatoes if using) onto baking sheet, add a little salt and pepper.  Put fish fillets on top of onion slices.  Spray or rub with olive oil (lightly), squeeze lemon juice over top, and add seasonings.  Bake until fish is white, and flakes easily with a fork.  You can also add more lemon juice before serving if desired.
For something this quick and easy, I really don't know why I don't cook fish more often. It is healthy (when not fried!) and is a source of Omega-3's and other good stuff.  You can read more about the health benefits here.  

So, fish on brother! And I mean that literally. I'd love to stock the freezer :-)


  1. I probably bake fish more often than I fry it! just some lemon and herbs and it's good to go!

  2. Thanks for stopping in over on my blog. Thought I'd come and give your blog a follow. LOVE it!!
