This is a great-tasting replacement for traditional high-fat fried fish.
We all know that we need to consume more fish and that it should be grilled or baked, instead of fried. After a swipe of olive oil, this perch was breaded with nutritious whole-wheat bread crumbs that were combined with seasonings, basil and Parmesan cheese.
If you like perch, I hope you give it a go. It bakes to a crispy goodness, and you won’t miss it not being fried ~ nor the clean-up ~ the mess from frying.
It’s quick, simple and good!
Baked Parmesan Perch
¼ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 pound perch fillets
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine the first 5 ingredients.
Brush fillets with olive oil, dip in crumb mixture.
Place fish on baking sheet sprayed lightly with cooking spray.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until fish flakes easily with a fork.
