Perch fillets

Post by Surprise »

Gifted perch fillets from the Admiral inspired this served with green beans & rice a "serve again" rating from Kathy EAZY- Breezy


Baked Perch Fillets with Herbs and Bread Crumbs

Yield: 6 fillets (6 Servings)
Prep: 5-10 mins
Cook: 15-25 mins
Ready In: 20 mins


2-3 Tablespoons parsley minced
1 teaspoon lemon zest finely grated
3 Tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons olive oil
salt, pepper
2/3 cup panko bread crumbs
Perch fillets
1 Tablespooon Dijon mustard
1-2 garlic cloves minced


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Melt the butter in olive oil in a skillet and cook the minced garlic on medium heat for about 30 seconds. Take the garlic butter off the heat. Pour all but 1 Tablespoon of the butter, oil in a small bowl and set aside.
Wipe the skillet with a paper towel and put the 1 Tablespoon of butter back in the skillet. Add the panko bread crumbs. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the crumbs are golden. Add 1/2 - 1 Tablespoon of minced herbs to the breadcrumbs. Set aside.
Mix the rest of the minced herbs with the lemon zest.
Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season each side with salt and pepper. Lay the fish with the narrow end pointed away from you.
Spread a thin layer of mustard on each fillet. Sprinkle with the minced herbs and lemon zest. Drizzle about a teaspoon of the garlic butter over each of the fillets.
Roll up the fillets or stack and repeat above tightly. Place seam side down on a baking dish and drizzle the rest of the butter over the fish bundles.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake until the center of the fish is 135 degrees. When the fish is 135 degrees in the center, (you'll need to cook it for 15-25 minutes, depending on how thick the fish is) sprinkle half the breadcrumb mixture over the fish and cook for 5 more minutes, uncovered. Sprinkle with the remaining breadcrumbs right before serving.
Fish On!
