This morning my daughter who lives next door brought in some Flathead Tails that she had defrosted but was not going to be able to cook today, so I didn't have to think about was was for tea, this was it.
I hate the smell of fried food, especially fish in the house so I decided to bake them.
|I have recently discovered a book on my bookshelf |
Apples for Jam by Tessa Kiros
and found this recipe in it - perfect for my Tails - Baked Fish Fillets
It's a very simple recipe for so much reward!
1/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 small eggs
1 tbsp chopped parsley
500g fresh fish fillets chopped into chunks
3-4 tbsp olive oil
lemon wedges and salt to serve
Preheat oven to 210C (415F gas 6-7)
spread flour on a flatish plate and breadcrumbs on another
whisk the eggs and parsley and pinch of salt together in a bowl.
Put the fish into the flour, then dip in egg, then in the breadcrumbs, to coat thoroughly.
Put fish on a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil turn and drizzle on the other side.
Bake in the oven for 10mins, turn and bake for a further 5mins or until fish is golden and crisp.
Serve sprinkled with salt and lemon wedges. If you are not a real fish fan these are perfect. Perfect for me, and perfect bite size pieces for kids!
