Nigel Slater’s Baked Fish with Parmesan Crumbs

by Hilary Gauntt on September 15, 2017

This couldn’t be easier or more delicious. For people who are unsure about cooking fish, this is a perfect recipe! Chef Slater tops his flaky white fish with breadcrumbs mixed with butter and Parmesan cheese, and bakes for about 15 minutes. Viola! Restaurant quality fish dinner.

4 flounder fillets (2 pounds total)

salt and freshly ground pepper

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup coarse fresh bread crumbs

4 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted

2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large baking dish, season the fish fillets with salt and pepper. Mix the Parmesan with with bread crumbs, melted butter and olive oil, and sprinkle over the fillets. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the fish is cooked and the topping is golden. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serves 4.

Note: I used halibut, which was done in 9 minutes! So check your fish earlier to be safe.
