Baked Red Fish

Lately, I seem to be getting blog requests and suggestions from everyone I know. And I love it! Today’s post came from my roommate’s boyfriend. He went on a big fishing trip and brought back two huge red fish filets for me to cook up. I was so excited! It’s a pretty basic recipe but, hey, when you have quality fish it really doesn’t take much. This was enough for 6 people plus a little left over, so of course I had to invite my loyal taste testers Meredith Cranch, Lauren Yurko, Caroline Lomax and Emily Songy over for dinner with Alex and me. Don’t worry, Desha had to miss dinner but came by later to taste.

Thanks Alex and Desha!

You’ll need:

1 medium size white onion
4 cloves of garlic
2 large lemons
Olive oil
Kosher salt
Cracked black pepper
Dried Thyme

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

These are my two huge red fish filets! I rinsed them in the sink. I baked this red fish with the skin on.

All the fresh ingredients chopped up.

Drizzle olive oil in a glass baking dish until the bottom is covered. Place the red fish filets skin side down in the dish. Now, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the filets.

Now drizzle a little olive oil over the fish then cover with fresh onion and garlic. Give a few shakes of dried thyme, cracked black pepper and kosher salt.

Now it’s ready to go in the oven! Bake for about 12min at 350 degrees. Check the filets before serving but don’t over cook the fish or it will dry out and get tough.

Garnish with a little roasted onion if you like and serve! Perfect Sunday night dinner!
