Baked White Fish

Baked white fish with onions and hard cheese is very gentle and fragrant. Preparation will take a minimum of time and effort, and the result will certainly please you. The fish prepared in this way is incredibly tasty and juicy. Mashed potato or rice is great side dishes. Any white sea fish: cod, pollock, hake, halibut or tilapia will be suitable for the recipe. To save time, you can buy already made fillet without skin and bones in the store. Frozen fish should be defrosted in advance in the fridge, so it will remain juicy and keeps its taste qualities.


  • Hake
    500 g
  • Onion
    2 pcs
  • Cheese
    150 g
  • Mayonnaise
    50 g
  • Olive oil
    25 ml
  • Fish seasoning
    0.5 tsp
  • Salt
    - to taste
  • Black pepper

  • 1. Wash the fish, cut off the tail and fins and remove the insides. Cut the hake carcass into two fillets and remove the spine and large bones. Cut the fish fillet into portion pieces.
  • 2. Put the hake pieces in a heat-resistant baking form, greased with vegetable oil. Salt the fish to taste, add seasonings.
  • 3. Peel onions and cut into thin semi-rings.
  • 4. Put semi-rings of onions over pieces of white fish.
  • 5. On top let’s apply a thin net of mayonnaise.
  • 6. Grate hard cheese on a large grater.
  • 7. Evenly spread grated cheese over a layer of fish and onions. Cover the form for baking with a lid or food foil and send the fish to a pre-heated up to 180 degrees oven.
  • 8. How much to bake the white fish? The exact time depends on the size of the fish pieces. The larger they are, the longer you'll need to bake them. In our case in 20-25 minutes the fish will be ready. 5 minutes before the end of the preparation let’s remove the cover or foil from the form so that the cheese from above becomes brown.
  • 9. Now you know how to bake white fish in the oven tastily and simply. Serve the ready dish in hot form, decorated with finely cut green onions.

    Bon Appetite!
