Busy-Day Baked Fish

I have a confession to make. I really, really dislike cooking. So I am always on the lookout for recipes that are (a) simple and uncomplicated, (b) do not involve frying anything, and (c) fast – something I can make after I get home from work and will be ready before we’ve died of starvation. I was delighted to see this recipe in the latest issue of Taste of Home. Paul and I tried it last week and both decided that we will do it again.

One note: I love fish, and even though it’s more expensive I try to get it every other week or so. We tried this recipe with shark steak – fish that I grew up eating in Peru. It was even cheaper than tilapia which made me happy! It was a bit tasteless, so I recommend some lemon juice or something to give it a tang.

Busy-Day Baked Fish

1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream (we didn’t have any so I used plain yogurt- maybe this was the reason for the lack of taste?)
2 tablespoons onion soup mix
1-1/2 cups seasoned bread crumbs (I only had plain bread crumbs… any ideas of good spices to add to this for next time?)
2-1/2 lbs fresh or frozen fish filets, thawed (I only had 1 lb, so I halved the recipe)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

In a shallow bowl, combine sour cream and soup mix. Place bread crumbs in another shallow bowl. Cut fish into serving-size pieces; coat with the sour cream mixture, then roll in the crumbs.

Place in two greased 13x9in baking dishes. Drizzle with butter. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese; bake 2-6 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 6-8 servings.
I wish I had thought to take a picture of the dish, because it looked scrumptious!

    Have you tried Old Bay Seasoning?

    I love fish too.

    Wish I knew more ways to prepare them, so thanks for sharing this.

    I'm absent minded tonight, so my thoughts are coming in two comments . . .:)

    Hi Ashley, Thanks for visiting my blog this week and leaving a comment! I do have a "fish" idea. :-) We like Salmon, spread with a little olive oil and sprinkled heavily with dill weed seasoning. Or instead sprinkle with a cajun type seasoning... super fast, easy, healthy and yummy! Blessings, Diane

    Oooh we love salmon! That's what we usually get, although it is a bit more expensive than the others. I'll have to try your suggestion!

    You need to mention the amazing Mexican cornbread we had Friday night! I've been craving more of that ever since...

    Hannah: That's coming. :-) Perhaps tonight or tomorrow!!
