Spicy Baked Fish (ready in 20 minutes)


It always surprises me how easy it is to cook fish. This spicy baked fish recipe is prepared and on the table in less than 20 minutes, making it a great, healthy, midweek meal.

The only drawback I find with fish though is that it can be on the bland side. The exception being salmon which I adore and is anything but bland. That’s why I came up with this spicy baked fish dish. All the goodness of fish but with a little kick, too.

As a Brit, I love my fish dipped in batter and deep-fried to perfection. Add some thick chips and a few scraps and I am in heaven. Not so awesome for the waistline though.

This spicy baked fish is not only quick and simple but really healthy, too. It’s baked so there’s no need for tons of fat – just a touch of olive oil is all that is needed.

I use grams in my recipes as weighing ingredients is the most accurate method. I have converted my measurements into imperial, but as I have not used these amounts myself, I cannot guarantee the end result.
