Easy Baked Fish Fillets

This is a pretty basic fish recipe, but I liked the zing of the lime juice.  I also ran out of bread crumbs AND Panko from the previous recipe and panicked!  BUT I just happen to have some Ritz crackers in the pantry and crushed those up and used them instead of breadcrumbs for this one tonight and it was great!

Easy Baked Fish Fillets

1 1/2 pounds grouper or other white fish (Wild caught cod was on sale and I used it for this recipe) fillets
1 T fresh lime juice (just use a whole lime.....)
1 T light mayo
1/8 tsp onion (ahem....garlic) powder
1/8 tsp black pepper (you really won't measure this, right?  Just grind it in there until it looks right)
1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs (and in a pinch Ritz work too, ha!)
1 1/2 T butter, melted
2 T chopped fresh parsley

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place fish in 11x7 inch baking dish (hahaha, I read it as 11x17 when I baked these and thought it was SO silly to need a pan that big--it's very clear now) coated with cooking spray.

Combine lime juice, mayo, GARLIC powder, and pepper in small bowl and spread over fish.  Sprinkle with breadcrumbs; drizzle with butter.  Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily.  Sprinkle with parsley.

Loved this, loved the cod!  Husband and boys loved it too!

(Serves 4)
