- 1 pound frozen fish fillets
- 2 or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 2 or 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- Salt and Pepper
- (optional: Dill Weed)
Oil up a baking dish the same size as the
frozen fish fillets. If the fillets are
individually frozen, I use a big flat pan,
and arrange them in a single layer. For fish
frozen in a big block, I usually use a bread
pan to bake it in. Either way, the point is
to put the frozen fish into a dish which is
the right size to hold it. Sprinkle salt and
pepper over the fish. Dot with margarine and
pour the lemon juice over all. If desired,
scatter a little dill on top for flavor.
This is especially good in the summer time,
when dill is fresh, but dry dill works
pretty well too. Bake the fish at 350° or
400° for 20 to 30 minutes, depending on the
temperature, and the thickness of the fish.
A block of frozen fish at 350°, may take 35
minutes to cook through. It is done when you
poke it with a fork and it flakes like fish
is supposed to. If it is tough or rubbery
then it isn't done yet. Put it back into the
oven and cook it some more. Serve the fish
with the juices from the pan. I like to sop
these up with whole wheat bread, or rolls.
Dill makes this a totally different dish.
