Shopping for White Fish Fillets

Fish may not be cheap to buy, but you can still find great quality fillets at a good price. When shopping for white fish fillets, your best bet is to use a flaky fish such as Cod and Snapper or on the cheaper end, Perch or Bass fillets. In fact, this recipe has been passed down to me by my brother, who is a chef by trade, and he uses Perch or Bass as he finds it cooks perfectly and the light flavour, allows the sauce to shine.


If however, you prefer an Australian fish, I have also cooked this recipe using Barramundi fillets, which is a sweet and slightly stronger flavoured fillet, and it has also turned out deliciously perfect.

Serves 4

Prep 5 minutes

Cook 15 minutes


INGREDIENTS:


Baked Fish:

4 White Fish Fillets* (approximately 180g each fillet)

2 tablespoons butter, dairy-free optional

1 tablespoon freshly minced garlic

1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves

¼ cup fresh lemon juice

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper


To Serve:

Or any side salad / baked or mashed vegetables


INSTRUCTIONS:


1. Preheat the oven and prepare the sauce: Preheat the oven to 200°C fan forced / 220°C conventional oven / 425°F. Melt the butter in a small frying pan and then add the garlic, thyme, and lemon juice. Whisk to combine creating a creamy sauce.

2. Prepare the fish: Line a baking dish with baking paper, place the fish fillets into a baking dish, and pour the lemon garlic sauce over the fillets. Using tongs turn the fillets over to coat both sides. Season with sea salt and pepper and add a thin slice of lemon over each fillet.

3. Bake: Place the fish into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through. In the meantime, prepare a side dish of your choice.

4. Serve: Remove from the oven, garnish with fresh parsley leaves, and serve.


*Personal preference for fish choice is Barramundi fillets; however, Perch fillets or Bass fillets are perfect to use. Keep in mind, if you use Barramundi, they are thicker and may need extra cooking time.
