This turned out just fabulous. Not only is it a pretty dish, but was delicious too! It was even tasty as a leftover. Although, be warned, it is a bit rich tasting. Very simple to make though.
- white fish fillets
(of any variety of fish with white meat. I had fresh caught whiting, thanks to hubby, so that’s what we used.)
- Olive oil
- finely ground, fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese. (a quick run in the food processor does a great job with the cheese for this recipe. Fresh is always better tasting. The preshredded won’t give you the same results.)
- lemon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat the fish fillets in a little olive oil (both sides). Dredge the fillets in the cheese, so that both sides are coated. Place the fillet on a lightly oiled cookie sheet. Sprinkle with paprika and lemon pepper (to taste). Bake for approx 15 minutes. (Note: cooking time will vary, depending upon how thick the fillets are. The fish should be white and flakey when done.)
Serve with lemon slices, a nice garden salad, and fresh fruit from the garden.
