Cooking Quest #2: Parmesan Baked Fish

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I have been wanting to do this for months! But it was just now that I found the time (and the urge) to make it.

There's the baked fish bandwagon - you have Cookbook's Parmesan Crusted White Fish, Angel's Kitchen's Parmesan Cesar Fish, then there's Moksha's Baked Fish, and some others.

Here's my attempt to satisfy this craving:

Didi's Parmesan Baked Fish

1 small bottle - Mayonnaise (the REAL one and NOT the 'lite' one! 220mL)
2 fillets - Dory Fillet (easiest one to find in the grocery!)
1 teaspoon - Paprika
1/4 cup - Milk
Bread Crumbs
Grated Parmesan Cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 3750C

1. Wash your fish in cold water then season them with salt and pepper.

2. In a bowl - combine well the mayonnaise, bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese (I can't say the exact measurements of the last three ingredients - its up to you - just make sure that the mixture is creamy thick! The more Parmesan cheese - the better!!)

3. Coat the fish fillets with the mayonnaise mixture. Make sure to coat them very well.

4. In a semi-deep baking dish (the smaller the better, but make sure the fillets will fit well with a little space to spare!) place the coated fillets one on top of another.

5. Pour the remaining mayonnaise mixture over the fillets.

6. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
*Check you fish from time to time to avoid burning!

Here's the finished product!

Cooking, cooking in the oven!!

Cooking is finally done!!

*I used a loaf pan - as I didn't have a smaller baking dish (the smallest that I have is the one for the lasagna - so I had to improvise!)
