Adapted from Creative Cooking – Fish & Other Seafood (out of print)

Printable Recipe
Prep time: 5 minutes
Roasting time: 20 minutes or so

Serves 4

1-1 ½ lb/450-650g white fish fillets (my daughter used haddock)
Salt and pepper to taste
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp paprika
2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped (the book calls for tarragon – not my favorite, use the herb you love best)
2 tbsp bread crumbs (the book calls for Italian seasoned, I love Panko)
2 tbsp butter
¼ cup Italian/flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
1 lemon, cut in wedges

1. Sprinkle fish on both sides with salt & pepper.

2. Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C.

3. Place fish in a single layer, in a buttered shallow baking dish.

4. In a small bowl, combine sour cream, grated cheese, paprika and herb of choice. Spread evenly over fish and dot with butter.

5. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

6. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve garnished with lemon wedges.
