Breaded baked COD/pangasius/

IMG_8974

I guess a lot of you love fish, but abstain because of unhealthy frying. Recently prepared in a new way this delicacy, in which no frying is involved, but baking in the oven. So you will be pleased by the fact that your House won’t get unpleasant smell of fried fish. Other great advantage is that you won’t stay permanently to the pan. Try and mark my words I use Cod or cheap version called pangasius or other fish.

Marinate with salt, soy sauce and lemon juice. It’s nice to soak in the marinade for at least an hour. Then dip the fillets in beaten egg,  then mixture to stick well: flour and breadcrumbs in a ratio of 50/50, spices-ground pepper, dried lovage and thyme. Arrange the pieces next to each other in a try with Baker’s paper on the bottom, which is oiled in advance. Sprinkle the fish with oil and bake in a pre-heated oven at 200 c, in the middle .

To consume with seasonally fresh, baked or cooked vegetables, pickles.
