Baked Parmesan Perch
So I decided to limit my red meat intake and add more fish and lean meats into my diet. Its just much better the body for so many reasons. I had some perch and salmon on hand so wanted to try a twist on the usual baked fish. I found this recipe online at allrecipes.com . Most of the recipes that i will be reviewing will be from here. Its a great site, I love how you can change to serving amount to fit the number of people you need to cook for , also it gives you the nutrition info on all the recipes and great reviews. I used this basic recipe for "baked Parmesan Perch"
and added a few other ingredients to give it my own flavor.
5. pieces perch
1/4 cup. Italian bread crumbs instead of plain
3 tablespoons butter (actually used smart balance light butter spread)
1-tablespoon Onion flakes
couple shakes oregano (roughly 1 teaspoon) original recipe calls for basil didn't have any so sub for oregano.
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon-. Garlic powder
Mix all dry ingredients in small bowl, in 2nd bowl melt butter in microwave for 20 secs. Dip fish in butter then in bread crumb mix. Add to greased baking dish. Bake uncovered for 20 mins at 350 or until fish is flaky and good. (Side note, when i made this dish i forgot the paprika until the fish was already i the pan so I just added it to give a little color and flavor on top a few shakes.)
I made this with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed mixed veggies and garlic bread. ( pepperidge farm Texas toast to be exact omg i love that stuff. ) Give this recipe five stars was so good, and easy and had everything on hand which hardly ever happens. Also low in fat and calories for those that are counting, delicious source of protein ,great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, and Vitamin A.
