HOW TO MAKE LEMON BUTTER BAKED FISH

Easy Weeknight Dinner

This simple dish is one of our family favorites. I serve it with baby potatoes and a side salad or my crazy easy homemade potato bake.

My husband loves fishing (thank goodness, because I dont). When Summer time comes round, he sees it as his personal mission to supply our family with locally caught fish fillets.

My freezer gets stocked with line caught, lovingly prepped fish fillets. His OCD comes out as each pack is perfectly portioned, labelled and dated. Personally, I dont know why he bothers. I use up every bit of fish before the Summer ends.

It makes him so happy.

Look how cute and happy he is with the fish he bought home.

HOW TO MAKE LEMON BUTTER BAKED FISH

Did I mention that this was an easy recipe to make?

  1. Its just a matter of mixing your garlic butter basting and pouring it over your fresh fish fillets.
  2. Then pop your fish in the heated oven (200C / 400F).
  3. Baking your fish should take around 10 minutes, so dont wonder off or get distracted by what the kids are doing. You know your fish is cooked when it flakes easily (test a piece with a fork) and its white inside. Uncooked fish appears a bit translucent and doesnt flake well. You may need to add a couple minutes if your fish fillets are a little thicker.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH YOUR BAKED FISH FILLETS

I have three ways that I like to serve up baked fish:

  • OPTION 1 Serve with a side of mashed potato, fresh steamed greens (asparagus, beans,peas or broccoli) and a white parsley sauce.
  • OPTION 2 this creamy potato bake and a side salad (this is a great option of you need to feed a crowd).
  • OPTION 3 with a side of boiled baby potatoes and a salad.
  • OPTION 4 (and this is always a family favorite) chunky oven baked fries for a healthy fish and chips kind of dinner.

Ingredients

  • 6 Fresh fish fillets (approximately 200g per person)

  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, to serve

  3. In a small mixing bowl, combine melted butter, garlic, Oregano and lemon juice.
  4. Lay your fish fillets on your baking tray and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour (or if you have one, use a basting brush) garlic butter over fish and top with lemon wedges (optional).

  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle over fresh parsley before serving.
