I like baking fish in the oven because is healthier than cooking in a skillet. In Romanian, most of the fish is associated with garlic, but I like it also with lemon, lots of lemon.
I found perch fillet in the store and I bought it for my little boy. When you buy fillet you get fish with almost no bones. He loves to eat fish so I try to have it on the table as often as possible.
This recipe is very simple and very tasteful.
- 3-4 fish fillets (perch or other fish) around 600 g -800 g total
- 4 garlic glove
- 2 lemons (1 is for decorations)
- 3 tablespoons butter
- Chili flakes (optional)
Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees F). Grease a baking pan with 1 table spoon of butter. Place the fillets in the baking pan and season with salt and pepper. Mix the rest of the butter with juice from 1 lemon. Pour over fillets. Cover the baking pan and bake it for 20 – 25 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
Sprinkle the chili flakes on top.
Serve it with rice or nature potentates. Enjoy!
