Looking for a simple fish dinner? Skip the frozen fillets and try this easy recipe for baked, fresh fish fillets. With little prep involved, this is a great last-minute, easy dinner for the family. You can use any firm white fish: cod, haddock, or grouper work well. The breading is not too overwhelming, but adds a delicious crunch. Serve it with leafy greens or thinly sliced oven baked potatoes.
1 1/2 pounds grouper or other white fish fillets
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 1/2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine, melted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Place fish in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine lime juice, mayonnaise, onion powder, and pepper in a small bowl, and spread over fish. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs; drizzle with butter. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with parsley.
Notes: Haddock or cod would make good substitutes for the grouper. Adjust the baking time depending on the thickness of the fish.

My husband and I love this dish. It is easy to make, tasty, and low in calories. We make it once a week and enjoy it every time. We have found Cod to be the tastiest. I buy frozen Cod for a great price and it is also a reasonably priced dinner. Fish lovers - you can't miss with this one! Dorothy F.
Have made this many times. It is super quick and easy. Halibut is my preferred fish but I have used tilapia as well. I've used panko but prefer the bread crumbs. A fish dish even my teenage daughter will eat!
My husband really liked this and it is easy. We took the advice of many others and added the following: 1 extra tblsp. butter, extra 1/8 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tblsp. parmesan cheese, sprinkle thyme and oregano. Also, we used panko instead of breadcrumbs.
Easy and delicious! My husband HATES mayo and of course I didn't tell him and he loves it. It is now part of my meal rotation. I've made this a few times already. I used flounder. Yesterday I forgot the butter and I doubled the sauce because I made two pounds and it still came out great.
I love this recipe and make it often. It's easy and delicious. I mix the butter and breadcrumbs and then put the breadcrumbs on the fish because the drizzled butter runs off the fish (maybe I'm not patient enough to drizzle slowly).
This is truly an 'easy' recipe. We try to eat fish several times a week, and this has become one of my go-to recipes.
Since I do not usually buy onion powder, I use chopped onions instead. One of my children does not like any type of breading, so I simply do not put any breadcrumbs on his piece. Otherwise, I follow the recipe to the letter, and it always comes out great.
Made with tilapia and lemon juice. At the last minute I realized I was out of limes. Because the fish was thinner and I had more pieces per pound, there was more area to spread the mixture over. I think I needed more mixture than I used because the fish seemed low in seasoning. I definitely would try this recipe again. It was very easy and still was eaten up.
