I have a huge crush on fancy dishes. But for daily life I rely on simple easy to cook dishes. They are efficient and always saves your ass. I don’t follow any kind of diet or restriction; in fact I don’t believe in that. I live on the simple logic of life. Eat, Work, Love!
Talking about love and not mentioning fish! That would be totally rude! If you offer me fish three times a day I’m still game. The only reason you won’t find many fish recipes in my blog is my bloody place. I don’t get good and fresh fish regularly around here. And I’m too lazy to waste one evening to go to the bigger fish market far from my home. Once in a while I get there to calm down my ‘fishy hunger’.
Though I get plenty of fresh ideas of fancy fish dishes most of the time I end up having them crispy fried due to lack of patience. So when I got good fish this time I was sure to make crispy spicy fried fish. And this time I even had a healthier and tastier version of fish: Baked Parmesan Fish with Green Pesto. The parmesan fish is enough to make me salivating; but when it gets the touch of Green Coriander Pesto with Chili Lime kick, I think I’m ready to go to the fish market again and again. And finally it’s baked; not deep fried not even stir fried.
Baked Parmesan Fish with Green Pesto Recipe:
Preparation Time: 05 mins
Cooking Time: 20 mins
Resting Time: 0 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
Yield: 4 servings
White fish fillet: 500g
Green pesto: 1 cup
Parmesan cheese: 1/3 cup
Breadcrumb: ½ cup
Flour: 2 tbsp
Paprika: 1 tsp
Salt to taste (cheese had enough salt for me so I skipped this)
Nonstick baking pan
Clean fish and wash carefully and cut into rectangular pieces. Make sure there is no bone at all in fillets. Marinate the fillets in ½ cup pesto for 15 mins.
Beat eggs lightly in a clean & dry mixing bowl. Dip marinated fish fillets in the beaten egg.
Mix parmesan cheese & breadcrumbs in another bowl. Add rest of the ingredients in the mixture and mix thoroughly. Coat the egg coated fish fillet with the breadcrumb mixture well on both sides.
Arrange the fillets in a greased nonstick baking pan. Preheat the oven at 1800C and bake the fillets for 20 mins at same temperature or until fish is flaky and nicely done.
Remove the pan from oven and serve immediately with extra pesto and sour cream. French fries or potato wedges complement this dish perfectly.
