So easy to make and a great way of eating more fish is this tasty baked white fish fillet dinner recipe. According to Norwegian health advice we should all eat fish at least 2-3 times a week. Let’s get started!
Icy and clean waters and the cold air has made Norwegian seafood world class. No wonder we have a lot of fish in our diet. But there are a fair share of great fish mongers in London too. Fresh fish is always best. But frozen will do if you don’t have access to fresh fillets.
Originally made with catfish, but I use any white fish, depending on season and price. It takes no more than 1 hour and the best thing is that it literary cooks itself, whilst you can work, help out with homework – or sink into the bath tub for a while…

800 g white fish skinl and boneless fillet
