Crispy Fish
Without The Grease

Oven-baked fish is a perfect alternative to the more caloric fried version. Not only is it better for you, but it is easy to make and tastes just as good. Serve the baked fish with a side salad and some fresh vegetables for a healthy and hearty meal any time.

Delicious, fast and super easy! Just made it for teenagers and got thumbs up around the table. I paired it with sautéed vegetables and seasoned oven baked fries.
