This is an extra-good way to prepare trout for a family meal, and its flavors far exceeded my expectations. I did use panko, a hefty dose of a hot Hungarian paprika, and sprinkled the fish the lemon pepper and garlic salt before slathering it with the tarragon mustard. I recommend a mustard you really like, one with some heft and a slight sweetness like a dijon "country style" or a Creole mustard like Zatarains. The crust wasn't super crispy, but that's not a problem unless you're expecting a fried-type of crunch. Like other reviewers, I put cooking spray over the panko before placing in the oven. Served with a green salad and some roasted potatoes.
Fast and easy recipe, but lacking in flavor. I made 3 fillets so I doubled the recipe from the start. My fillets were 12in.+ long, and I used 4x the recipe for the mustard mixture. After baking it, there was just the slightest noticeable flavor of mustard - barely distinguishable. I would suggest slathering that fish in the mustard like you want it to drown in it. I didn't have sourdough bread on hand so I used whole wheat sandwich bread. Bad idea! I'm using sourdough next time. I'd also double the paprika, and lemon wedges are not an option. Two lemon wedges per fillet might be a good idea.
Yummy recipe although a bit bland. I will make it again, but definitely doing things differently.
I made this with tilapia filets and it was wonderful. I brushed the fish with the mustard mixture and then dredged it in panko crumbs and baked for 10 minutes. My 4 year old gobbled it up, his quote... "I tried this mommy and it was super super yummy"
This is a delicious, quick and easy weeknight dinner with a fish I can usually find at an affordable price. I have made it with the breadcrumbs from the recipe and with panko and liked both. Spraying the fish/mustard/ bread crumbs with a little canola cooking spray helps make the breadcrumbs crisp.
