Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Place breadcrumbs, salt and pepper in a small dry skillet over medium heat. Cook, stirring, until toasted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Brush both sides of each fish fillet with oil and dredge in the breadcrumb mixture. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake the fish until opaque in the center, 5 to 6 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make Tarragon Tartar Sauce.

  • To serve, carefully transfer the fish to plates using a spatula. Garnish with a dollop of the sauce and serve with lemon wedges.

Easy to make! Highly recommended (for us lazy cooks at least!) I used cod and after the fish was cooked ate it with lemon and some mild chili sauce instead of the tartar sauce. Will definitely make again. Thanks!!! Read More
