Baked Fish with Fresh Herbs

Posted: Updated:

4 servings


  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 6 tablespoons minced peeled onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon or lime juice (preferably freshly squeezed)
  • 1½ teaspoons finely snipped fresh basil leaves (no stems) or ½ teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 1 to 1½ pound fish fillets (Rainbow Trout, Orange Roughy or Tilapia or flounder or other white fish), fresh or frozen, thawed, cut into 4 (4 to 6-ounce ) serving pieces
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley (no stems)
  • Thin lemon or lime wedges or slices for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black or white pepper to taste


In a small bowl, combine garlic, onion, oil, lemon or lime juice, basil, and paprika, blending well. 


Arrange fish fillets in a 10 x 6 x 2-inch baking dish/pan lightly coated with non-caloric vegetable cooking spray.  Evenly pour garlic mixture over fish.  Bake, uncovered, in a preheated moderate oven (350 degrees F.) for 15 to 20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  May place fish under the broiler, about 6 inches from heat source, for 2 to 3 minutes to lightly brown just before serving, if desired.   

Sprinkle each serving with minced parsley and garnish each with thin lemon or lime wedges or slices.  Pass salt and pepper to taste. 

Variations: Omit basil.  Add 1 large sprig fresh thyme or oregano or several stems fresh cilantro     to garlic mixture; remove just before serving. 

                    Add 2 tablespoons dry white wine to garlic mixture.  

                    Omit fresh herbs, except parsley for garnish; add ½ to 1 teaspoon dried fines herbs to garlic mixture.
