Fish Bake

Most of the time we like to eat our fish dredged in flour, fried in a bit of butter with a dash of salt and pepper and a sprinkle of lemon but sometimes I just need to try a new recipe. I used two kinds of fish for this dish, salmon and pickerel. You can use your favorite type of fish.
  • 2 pounds fish fillets
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Grease a 2 quart baking dish (I used a 8" x 12" glass baking pan). Arrange fish fillets in the baking dish.
  2. Whisk together salt, pepper, Tabasco sauce, paprika, Parmesan cheese, and sour cream.
  3. Spread over fish, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and dot with butter.
  4. Bake uncovered in a 350ยบ oven for 30 minutes. You should be able to flake the fish easily with a fork when done.
  5. Serve with lemon slices.
  6. Serves: 6


  1. This sounds wonderful and a great way to cook fish for a weeknight meal. I think I actually have some Cod in my freezer - bet that would be good in this dish.

  2. Looks delicious, Betty! Mmm... Pickerel. Nice!

  3. Oh, we would enjoy this. Pickerel isn't a common fish around here but I'd like to try it with red snapper or tilapia.

  4. I might have to try this one for dinner tonight! Thank you for sharing :)

  5. I am not commeting on the this particular recipe....Just want to say I got my recipe book signed by some of the 'girls' in Steinbach a few days ago and today made the steamed Kielke roll ups with the farmer sausage (Altona), potatoes and onions. It was deluxe. (Though I added a bit of corn starch to thicken the schmondfat. I only do the cooking/baking when my wife is away because I make too much of a mess and even when she's gone she can tell I've done Kielke because there's flour on the floor. She says it feels like a 'kjnipsbrat' board after you flour it up so the pieces will slide better. Thanks for the book/recipes. Can't wait to try another one when my wife leaves....

    cheers, Rick Loewen

  6. This recipe sounds amazing. I am totally going to try it. We love fish around here, and I can actually eat it!

  7. Betty, although fish is not a dish that I am fond of, but will try the recipe! Who knows, I may take a liking too it!!!!
    I know that my hubby would enjoy the fish!

  8. Rick Loewen. ..thanks for the smile tonight! Wow. .that is fantastic that you made the rolled up Kielke. I just bought some good quality bacon on the weekend because it feels like its about time to make these again. They are my hubby's favorite and he has many talents but this isn't one of them.
    Way to go!

  9. I make this same recipe except I make more of the sour cream sauce and mix that with cooked, drained and chopped spinich then lay the fish on top, top with the sour cream mixture and bread crumbs..cook as directed yum!

  10. I am out of sour cream can I substitute Mayonaise\/

    1. I'm sure that would work, it might just change up the flavor a wee bit but Mayo goes well with fish anyway.
