Crumbed Oven Fried Fish
|Milk||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Fine dry bread crumbs||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Flounder/Sole / halibut / cod / haddock fillets||1 1⁄2 Pound|
|Butter/Margarine||4 Tablespoon, melted (1/2 Stick)|
|Lemon||1 , cut into 4 wedges|
1. Adjust the oven rack to slightly above the middle of the oven, and preheat the oven to 500°F. Put the milk into a shallow bowl or pie plate, and stir in the salt. Mix the bread crumbs with the paprika on a plate or a sheet of wax paper. Dip the fish fillets into the milk, then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Place the fillets in a single layer in a buttered 8"x8"x2" baking dish.
2. Pour the melted butter over the fillets. Bake, uncovered, for 5 minutes or longer, depending on the thickness of the fish. When the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork it is done. Garnish with the lemon wedges if desired. Serve with Coleslaw, or Spinach-Bacon Salad with Warm Dressing.
