How to Bake Fish

Most whole fish, fillets or cutlets can be baked in a preheated 180-200°C oven, unless the recipe specifies a different temperature. Whole fish can be stuffed before baking.

Put fish in an ovenproof or casserole dish, with seasoning (salt, pepper, herbs, spices) and liquid (water, stock, court bouillon, wine, milk, tomato juice), covered or uncovered, and bake until tender.

Alternatively, wrap fish (especially fillets, cutlets and steaks) and seasonings in lightly greased aluminium foil or baking paper.
