The Very Best Fish Recipe Ever

The Best Fish Recipe Ever!

I was always intimidated by fish until I stumbled upon this amazing recipe, and I have been meaning to share it for ages.  I got the original version from my dear friend Jenny during a mom’s night out recipe swap back when we both lived in Seattle.  We were so chatty that night that I only ended up writing down two recipes, but this was one of them.

In the years since, I have tweaked it just a bit.   It is one of my family’s very favorite meals and it is also a fantastic–and super easy–dish to serve guests, provided they eat seafood.

The really great thing about this recipe is that it works with pretty much any type of fish or seafood.  The original recipe called for halibut, which I love but is very hard to get here in Florida.  I have used tilapia, mahi hahi, salmon, flounder, cod, & shrimp with this recipe, and they have all turned out wonderful.


Thanks again Jenny!

    I have the same problem with fish–I love it but I never know how to prepare it, so I just don’t. This sounds so easy. I am adding fish to my grocery list as we speak so I can try it tonight!

    This sounds delicious! I’m not such a huge fan of fish, but with creamy parmesan cheese, you can’t go wrong. Will have to try this soon. Thanks!

    Ruth,

    Can’t wait to try this! We have a deep freezer full of fish that my husband caught. I know once I find a good recipe for fish (trout), it will be a once-a-week dinner at my house!

    My family loves fish but I’ve always been to nervous about cooking it. With this recipie…I think I can! Thank you! One quick question though…would you preheat the oven to broil low or high? My oven has a choice of settings.

      I used to order this at a restaurant in north Florida called Harry’s seafood. I always got the server to order me steamed broccoli and some of the same sauce on top. Completely sinful!

    I’ve made this often with fresh catfish. Very good fish recipe.

    I used to have fish fairly often but stopped when it became so difficult to buy fish from USA, not China. Where there are very poor sanitation standards. This recipe sounds delicious so I may just have to ignore the country of origin once in awhile. One question: is the Parmesan cheese shredded (strips) or grated (powder)? Thanks for posting.

      The Parmesan Cheese is shredded.
      Hope you enjoy!

    This was delicious! Used cod and substituted a few tablespoons of sriracha for the hot sauce. Entire family (4 kids included) ate, enjoyed and asked for seconds. Will double recipe next time!
    Thanks so much for the recipe.
