This baked fish recipe couldn’t be easier to prepare. It is moist and flaky. The cheese will melt on the bottom and brown on top creating an oozing sauce that complements this meal beautifully.
I used Wahoo for this baked fish recipe but any white, firm fleshed fish will do. I also used Feta cheese. However, if you can’t find it you can substitute it for a salty fresh white cheese. It needs to be creamy so don’t go for a dry one.
This baked fish recipe is low in calories and in carbs making it an extremely satisfying meal is you are on a diet.
Here is what you are going to need for this healthy baked fish recipe:
1 ½ pounds fleshy white fish such as Wahoo, Halibut, Mahi-Mahi or Catfish
2 TBS mayonnaise
2 TBS Feta cheese – or any other white salty cheese
¼ tsp. oregano
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F (190 C). Rinse and pat dry the fish and place it in an oven proof dish.
In a bowl mix together the mayonnaise, cheese and oregano. Mix well.
Squeeze one half of a lemon on the fish and sprinkle with about ¼ tsp. of salt and pepper. Spread a thin layer of cheese on top.
Flip the fish and squeeze the remaining half of lemon on the fish. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and pepper and spread the remaining cheese on top.
Slice the second lemon and place slices on top of the fish. Remove all seeds.
Place the fish in the oven and bake for 20 to 15 minutes – depending on the thickness of the fish. If your fish is thinner then it will not take that long. Once the fish is flaky and the cheese is melted and browned on top it is ready.
Serve with a drizzle of the bottom melted cheese and extra lemon slices. This fish goes well with rice, couscous or steamed quinoa. Enjoy!
