Baked Fish Tips
What's the best fish to bake?For this fish recipe, your best bet is to use a flaky white fish, such as tilapia, halibut, cod, bass, grouper, haddock, catfish or snapper. White fish doesn’t mean that the fish is white in color; rather, it is a mild-flavored fish that cooks quickly and seasons very well. Learn more about the different types of fish.
How can you tell when a fish is finished cooking?To test the doneness of fish, carefully pierce the thickest portion with a fork and twist slightly to see if it flakes without resistance. If it does not, cook it longer. Just make sure you are cooking fish properly.
Do you flip fish when baking?Because fish is delicate and cooks quickly, flipping the fish isn’t always necessary.

Pretty good, except for one important factor. The temperature of 440 does not state whether itS F or C. I am not an american, nor have I ever baked anything before, so I am confused as to the temperature designation

I had a large bag of frozen tilapia sitting in my freezer, along with some Arthur Marc’s Garlic Butter sauce

I don't routinely cook with fish or any seafood since I am not a huge fan. However, my husband is a hunter so he eats just about anything and we are both looking to eat better. I do like some fish and I have cooked Shrimp for him in the past just using a butter and garlic sauce, so when I saw this recipe I figured even I could do this! So I followed the recipe with the paprika but added a garlic blend seasoning and onion powder to the melted butter since we are both huge garlic fans. We loved it. The haddock filets I had weren't very thick so I cooked them at 350° for about 25 mins because I didn't want them to get tough. Will most certainly use this again.

Fast as promised, and nice flavor. Next time, I may cut back on the salt and add a little garlic and lemon zest.

I cooked this for my husband tonight, using catfish. It was a very tasty alternative to fried.

I had fish to use up which had been in my freezer: used codfish and flounder fillets. I used 1/4 tsp. each paprika and pepper. I DID add 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese! I didn't cover the fish-I just baked it as is and it worked out well-really tasty! delowenstein
